Before kids, I thought getting sick was just minorly inconvenient.
I had no idea the havoc that the sniffles or an upset tummy can bring to an entire household. Fussy kids, sleepless nights, constant needs that never seem to end. It’s ROUGH!
And kids seem to catch every bug that passes within a mile of them. I can’t tell you how many play dates have been canceled because at least one of the kids was sick. As a parent, we all know how hard it is to take care of sick kids. So when a fellow parent has children who are under the weather, we want to help. But of course, we don’t want to spread the dreaded germs to our own families.
What can we do to practically help a family who has sick kids?
Help Them with Their To-Do List
Life doesn’t stop just because your kids get sick. Help your friends out by running some errands or making a few phone calls. Do they need to mail a package? Do it for them! Do they need to take their dog on a walk? Do it for them! Do they need to return library books? Do it for them! Your willingness to serve will be a great comfort.
Sometimes when we’re in the trenches of fighting an illness, we lose sight of reality and perspective. As a friend, bring a smile to your friend’s face with a text here or there, letting them know they’re cared for. Knowing people care can mean the difference between a horrible experience and an inconvenient one. By giving your buddy someone to talk to, they can keep from feeling so alone.
Drop Off a “Survival” Gift Basket
Consider filling a basket with things every parent needs to survive a “plague”. What should you fill it with?
A natural hand sanitizer will definitely come in handy. Tissues for those runny noses are always needed. Load them up with effect natural treatments like those from Little Remedies®. They have a great line of products to help all sorts of things that ail kids. You can feel great about blessing another family with these remedies because they’re free of artificial flavors, artificial dyes, and parabens. I’ve trusted this brand with my family’s health for years!
They have a BRAND NEW Little Remedies Probiotic Plus Electrolytes packets to help upset tummies. It has 5 billion active cultures of the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG which get the digestive tract back on track and supports the immune system. These packets also have electrolytes to add valuable minerals and nutrients to help restore hydration. *These statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
It is the only product geared towards kids with both a probiotic AND an electrolyte to make things just a little bit easier when kiddos are sick. You’ll find Little Remedies Probiotic Plus Electrolytes in the digestive aisle at Target (not the baby aisle).
Target has a great deal going on now through May 14th where you get back a $5 Target gift card with purchase of any Little Remedies product. Find how other moms are using Little Remedies® Probiotic Plus Electrolytes by visiting this link here.
Don’t forget to shower those hard working parents with some special treats too. Some candy, fun festive drinks and some life-saving coffee, I’m sure will be warmly accepted! A couple other ideas to include in your survival basket: a magazine or book, playing cards, some nice smelling lotion; really anything that can brighten their day. By bringing them a thoughtful basket, you’ll be seriously blessing them!
Here’s to happy, healthy families!

A sick kid survival basket would be an awesome way to help a mom with sick kids! I love including things to help the kid and things for mom too! Great way to boost the spirit! -client
I tried to think of things I’d appreciate when my kiddos were sick. Had to have some sweets! 😉
