Create this Millennial First Aid Kit for a first apartment or dorm.
Have you recently moved into your own apartment? Or, are you a mom whose child has moved into a dorm room recently? Create this first aid kit for them to deal with emergencies. It is the perfect substitute when you are not around to help them out.
My 19-year-old son recently moved out into his first apartment. He has really been asserting his independence over the last six months, so I was not surprised when he said he was moving out. As a mom, I worry about if he is eating and sleeping well, if he will be able to pay expenses, and about his health and wellness. He doesn’t usually return my texts, which makes me worry. I am able to see that he’s safe and sound by following him on Snapchat.
When I was living in my first apartment in a different state from my family, I had a few medical situations come up that I was not prepared to deal with. No way was I going to call home and admit I needed help. I didn’t want a lecture or embarrassing questions, so I dealt with things myself. I get that my son probably feels the same way. A good first aid kit with instructions would have helped me out back then, and I hope it helps my son now.

#On my First Aid Kit Labels Printable, I included two first aid symbols. One says Don’t Forget to Call Mom and the other is blank. I included the first one on my son’s kit because he really needs that reminder.
Since the primary issues that my son will deal with are headaches, muscle aches, and joint pain, I added Advil® Liqui-Gels® minis 160ct to his first aid kit. Fast Relief is Now Mini! This 33% smaller pill is easier to swallow but has the same strength. Nothing’s faster than Advil on tough pain*. *Among OTC pain relievers Advil® Liqui-Gels® minis 160ct can be purchased in the pain reliever aisle at Target. You can find this product on Target.com as well.
My son should be all set to deal with any sickness or injury with this first aid kit. What do you think Millennials need to have on hand after they move out?
