Parents Are Paying To Get Their Kids Fortnite Training

Wish I could say I’m making this up but I’m not. Although this isn’t new in the video game industry, Fortnite has made it more popular to hire a coach so that you can get better at the game.

According to The Wall Street Journal (via Bleacher Report), parents are paying coaches by the hour to improve their children’s Fortnite techniques. One parent commented, “There’s pressure not to just play it but to be really good at it. You can imagine what that was like for him at school.” Parents may commonly pay for their children to learn a sport or an instrument, but now that same concept is going toward video game prowess.
