People who have a strong sense of entitlement think rules don’t apply to them. Researcher Dr. Emily Zitek explains, “[These individuals] don't think it's fair for other people to tell them what to do… Instructions are essentially an unfair imposition.

They feel like they deserve good things and special treatment… The fundamental problem here is that entitled individuals think they deserve more than other people think they do.”

Based on an analysis of medical expenses and costs associated with work and school absences and deaths between 2008 and 2013, federal health officials say that the economic cost of asthma in the United States is almost $82 billion per year. However, the actual cost of asthma is most likely underestimated because the study did not include individuals with untreated asthma. Lead author Dr. Tursynbek Nurmagambetov writes, “Cost studies can influence health policy decisions and help decision makers understand the scale, seriousness and implications of asthma so that resources can be identified to improve disease management and reduce the burden of asthma. [The findings show] the critical need to support and further strengthen asthma control strategies.”

When it comes to divorce, it’s important to be open and honest with children. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers the following suggestions for divorcing parents: keep communication clear and simple; do not promote the idea that the divorce is the child's fault or that the child can help rectify the situation; reassure the child that they will be safe; mention that mom and dad will both be happier; and emphasize that there will be two homes in which the child will be loved.
