In this video, I address the most common symptoms of panic disorder, a type of anxiety disorder that causes individuals who experience it to feel like they may be having a heart attack! And although panic disorder is not a heart attack, it can gradually increase the risk for heart attacks or heart-related deaths, especially in women.

Learn the signs of a panic disorder and schedule an appointment with your mental health provider if you consistently, experience any of the symptoms mentioned.

This video is not about defining millennials. It's about understanding who many of them are so we can better engage with this generation. Now all, who identify themselves as millennials, live with the discussed ideologies. The information shared in this video was received from individuals who identified themselves in this subgroup.

Teaching your Child the Basics of Organizational Skills

Tip 5: Importance of a Comfort Zone

Remember the cycle of Rewards and Reinforcements that I was talking about? If your child has been cooperative this far i.e. up till day 5, its now time to set them up for a reward.

Identify a corner in the bedroom that he/she can call their own. Ask them to select something that they find comfortable – like a bean bag or a lounge chair. This is where your child can unwind and relax doing things that he/she likes; for example, reading a book or playing video games. Allot a specific time and duration in the day where they can be just themselves!

Remember, that area is off limits for you – it purely belongs to him/her and they set the rules. For example, she can keep a couple of books or other items scattered in the zone if that’s what she really wants. However, be very specific in establishing boundaries – “The zone between the south-west corner of the wall to this starting edge of the study table is yours”. Any violation of that, and he doesn’t get his “me” time that day.

Note: it is extremely important for girls with ADHD to have a personal space and some personal time. Boys, may not care much but girls REALLY need it.

Lessons Learnt:
1) Everyone has a place they can call their own, now I have mine!

2) My private space is respected as long as I respect its limits
I need to earn good things in life and I can’t have them all the time.
