Parents Are Now Hiring

Parents Are Now Hiring "Fortnite" Coaches For Their Kids

The reason is a new insane trend where parents are hiring Fortnite coaches for up to $20 per hour to train their kids so that they can beat other players in the free-to-play battle royal game.

Still, many Fortnite coaches are bemused by this parenting trend.

Another parent noted that their 12-year-old son was struggling to win when competing in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Forget baseball or hoops, parents are now spending money to get their children coaching help for video games.

With all their new faces under the same roof for the first time, Liverpool had their raft of new signings perform karaoke as a mass initiation ceremony at their training base in France .

Some of the parents interviewed by WSJ said they hoped their children would turn their video game hobby into a future career or use it to get scholarships. "I earned a little credibility with my son and his friends - and my wife and daughter made fun of me", he said.

However, if this is something parents are interested in, Fortnite tutors are said to be typically found on social media or contracting sites, with one site claiming it has hired over 1,400 Fortnite coaches since March. The charges go up to $50 (roughly Rs. 3,400) depending on the number of hours and lessons. "My dad would have never paid for me to take video game lessons", Logan Werner, an 18-year-old Fortnite coach in Utah, told the Wall Street Journal.

'You can imagine what that was like for him at school'. However, a new report suggests the latest boom area for private schooling isn't maths, English, or another academic subject - it's Fortnite. But now, they are getting calls from parents who do not want to let their children fall behind.
