Seeing the upside of moving house/area/school

I want to move house - for many reasons some practical - closer to work, and some emotional - start again after a split, get away from wrong crowd my sons been mixing with and getting into big trouble at school, taking drugs and poor behaviour. It's not a huge distance and will be able to stay in touch with friends and come back every fortnight to be with Dad but it's another county and will mean a new school. Son has dyspraxia and problems with low self esteem, communications and doesn't like change. Our relationship has not been great since teens kicked in and he seems to really hate me. Older son will stay behind to finish A levels and go to uni this year. I've found a house, offer accepted, school place available. Now need to bite the bullet and tell the children so I can put house on market but I'm struggling to find the courage. Any advice on making it easier?

There's a q and a thread at the top of this. I would copy this into that as you will get some expert advice.
I think there is no easy way. You're going to just have to bite the bullet and do it.

Afraid I have no real advice but you have my sympathy.

You're making a decision with your DC's best interests at heart but he is unlikely to share your opinion/optimism about the move. Is there any possibility problems at school notwithstanding that he could live with his dad during term time and remain at the same school or are you adamant that changing schools is essential for him?
