I don't have a child of my own, but I can talk about my sister. Is that okay? The last time I moved...I take my young sister to live with me...she's 8 turning 9. She cried because she missed the swimming pool. Our old house have a swimming pool, but I moved out because tired of cleaning the pool and move to a different home with less responsibility like cleaning the pool. It took her about a month to get over it. Sometime she complain to me...and say I'm mean. As being one of the eldest in the family, its really hard sitting down watching my little sister complain, so I would make a small play house for her. now she complain its too small. So, I believe she hate this house. lol
I don't think it is as clear cut as that. It is bittersweet in that the house is now a quiet and the parents are free to do as they please when they please without having to take into consideration any of their children in the house, and it is also a quiet house with no extra person to help break up the silence.
