    Speaking only on the side of your family(not the golden handcuffs) - My husband and I recently ‘uprooted’ our two teenage boys and 5th grade daughter for a new practice opportunity. It has been hard and heartbreaking because it was the only home they knew. I question the decision on a weekly basis. Our kids are making friends and we are 4 months into the move. We are making new traditions in our new community. It’s really not the end of the world, they didn’t break. If you are making your decision solely on your daughter, remember how resilient kids are. We have some friends who moved for a job after their oldest graduated high school was in her first year of college and their two youngest made the move. The oldest is the one having the harder time. When she comes home, their new home does not hold the same feelings that it does for the rest of the family. There are pros and cons to all decisions. I think the move has put a lot of stress on my kids, for sure, but they have a pretty sweet life overall.
