(WKBW/Cleveland Clinic) It's already been associated with things like depression and poor grades.
Now, a new study finds video game addiction may also increase mental health problems in children.
Researchers found that kids who engaged in gaming 4 to 6 hours a day had increased levels of depression, increased levels of anxiety, and increased social phobia.
When they stopped pathological gaming, depression, anxiety, social phobia went down.
That's why doctors say it's important to set limits on your child's game play.
