Parents Paying for Fortnite Tutors? What?
In some way, shape, or form, you've probably heard of Fortnite. It's an immensely popular game these days. I play it as well! I'm not very good at it, but I'm not sure I go to this length to get better at it.
The Wall Street Journal reports that some parents are worried about their child's performance in the game. So to improve this, moms and dads are hiring tutors for their child to get better at the game. Yes, you read that right. Tutors for getting better at video games! It's weird to think that somehow gaming prowess has overtaken academic progress, but stranger things have occurred haven't they? The main reason parents hire these tutors is so that their kids feel less pressure at school. With other children bragging about their ability to win, other children might feel bad about not being able to win. Other parents however, hire these tutors so they can get better themselves, and play the game with their child.
I'm not a parent myself, but maybe hiring a tutor for school studies might be more important...
