We are very close and I fear it is leaving me that might be the issue. He doesn't want to talk about it when i ask him. He will be in the same school system. They will be about 15-20 minutes away.

So, I plan to stay involved as much as I can to make it easier.
Does anyone has any other advice on how to make the move/transition easier for him.
