I really want to move home and start fresh somewhere new but I am worried that the change will be too much for my children. Is it fair to uproot them or should I wait until they are old enough to move out?

It depends. How old are they? Children are very adaptable. I grew up in the military. We moved 22 times from the time I was born until I turned 18. I went to 12 different schools. There are ups and downs to moving. I had 4 brothers and sisters, so between the 5 of us making friends was easy. So each move was like a new adventure. If your children have been in the same place for a long time. and they are teen agers, then I would wait until they at least graduate. It is alot harder on teens to deal with new people places and schools then for younger ones.
