(FOX 32 NEWS) – American kids now get their first cell phones when they are just 10-years-old.

And children from 0 to 8 now spend 48 minutes per day on a mobile device, reports Fox News. That’s a shocking increase from just 13 minutes a day four years ago.

Psychologists say that increased screen time is linked to increased risk of depression.

Experts also warn that having a tablet or a smartphone means that children have pornography at their fingertips.
