Will I have a good move? Is there enough room in the new house?
These are all relevant fears, how ever preparation can give you the solutions that you need.
First: Do your homework
If you are aware of the moving area, do your homework, research the neighborhood, schools. Make a special trip to the school to meet the administrators. Take your child to remove their fears as well. You may meet a couple new people on the way.
Second: Be realistic
If you are working in then same position doing the same work.. You are going to be able to serve up the same work duties.. With a fresh new start you maybe even have a new desire to push harder and do better.

Or worse traveling room to room to put them away. It cuts out the guess work and alleviates the anxiety of losing things in the shuffle.
