Much of this is due to young children to find legal ways to obtain a solution and the fact that doctors make more money when you are diagnosed with something . There is also the fact that most marriages end in divorce and children are increasingly depressed because of it . However, no body wants to do anything about it because if they did , they would lose that money , which is what matters to them moreso than they do for children .
