Considering the ‘burbs? Start here.
We share the 5 QUESTIONS you need to ask with our friends at Mommybites!
If you’re considering making the move from the city to suburbia, chances are you’re overwhelmed with choice. Is now the “right” time? Will we like the ‘burbs? Will my kids adjust? What about the commute? And, really, should we just stay in the city?
It’s a lot to consider but, as we explained to Mommybites, the entire should-we-stay-or-should-we-go debate can be streamlined and simplified by asking yourself five simple questions. From Mommybites:
“Countless city families have had this very same debate every single year—should we stay in the city or head to suburbia? It’s, arguably, the biggest decision you’ll ever make, so it’s definitely one not to take lightly...By running through these questions you’ll likely have a better sense of where you belong—at least for now.”
First and foremost? SHOULD you even leave. We love suburbia, but we also know it’s not for everyone.
“While, often, there are a few factors weighing on your decision—kids starting school, new additions to the family, a desire or, even, need to be near the grandparents—usually something breaks the proverbial camel’s back. So what IS that—and is it a temporary inconvenience or a something that’s just going to make the ‘burbs look better and better over time?”
And after running through these five critical questions? While you might not know exactly where you belong next, chances are you’ll have a better sense of if your immediate future involves suburbia or not. And from there?
