I am under 30, and I am wondering why mental disorders were not diagnosed at such a signficant rate when I was a child...is it that children are really that "screwed up" in today's world so to speak, or is it that parents are driving them into materialistic, narcissistic, unrealistic, and unhealthy worlds at such an early age?
