Everything you need to know about house hunting, packing, moving and transitioning when you have kids.

Looking for a new home can be so much fun -- when you're not actually moving! But when you're not just watching House Hunters or browsing Zillow, looking for a new home can be incredibly stressful. And when there are kids involved, it's even more chaotic and has looming child care and school deadlines increasing the stress.

Care.com and Zillow have partnered to create helpful tips and advice for familes going through a move. Whether you're "just looking," actively searching, packing, listing your own home, or transitioning to the new neighborhood, the following advice should help alieviate the stress.

And while Care.com babysitters will help with the kids so you focus on each stage, you can also check out the helping hands who want to pack, unpack and organize for you!
