Lock, stock and baby bottle.

How instability impacts our children.

The few things we know for certain:

  • The higher the rate of residential moves, the more behavioural, social-emotional and educational problems a child will exhibit.
  • The following factors have been proven to have an impact on a child’s stability:
  • Loss of familiar activities and routines.
  • The loss of familiar physical environments.
  • Loss of social-support networks.
  • A decrease in their parent’s well-being or quality of parenting due to a move.
  • The loss of prior social connections.
  • The quality of the new home and neighbourhood.
  • The extent of the impact and effect of the above mentioned relies heavily on the age and gender of the child, the family structure as well as parental support.
