Parents Are Hiring 'Fortnite' Tutors For Their Kids To Improve Because That's What This World Has Come To

Yet another FML for humanity

The popular third-person shooter game Fortnite has got everyone obsessed, but did you know exactly how obsessed that is? 

Sure, kids are struggling to pass their classes and our educational system is going to shit, but hey, why not hire a tutor so little Timmy here can stunt on his friends during recess? According to the Wall Street Journal, that's exactly what's happening. 

"There’s pressure not to just play it but to be really good at it," Ally Hicks told the Wall Street Journal "You can imagine what that was like for him at school." Hicks allegedly spent around $50 for four hours of online Fortnite lessons for her ten-year-old son.

Clearly, it's not just violence in video games that can be upsetting to parents, but raising a no-good losing loser kid.

"I want them to excel at what they enjoy," Euan Robertson said. "They’re not going to break a leg playing video games." 

True. Definitely true. Exposing your kid to all that violence? A small price to pay to not have your kid dangerously running around a field, getting fresh air and excercise. What a death wish.

The parents reportedly pay anywhere from $50 for a four-hour lesson to $20 an hour. What do you think? Would you do it? In either case, think it over while you check out this hilarious and relevant meme.

Am I the only one that thinks Fortnite sucks? Also, if I have a kid, I sure as hell wouldn't be making him play Fortnite. I'd be making him play Dark Souls of course! Don't need a tutor. A "git gud" is all it takes.

How is getting your kid a one-time professional lesson to help them be better at a game they love any different from getting them lessons in a musical instrument or a sport they'll never play professionally? Games can develop mental skills in a similar way to playing an instrument. As long as you're monitoring their online time and keeping them from becoming toxic asshats, it's just a splurge on something that'll make your kid happy.

As a PUBG player, I am inclined to say that Fortnite is trash and the entire fanbase is cringy 12-year-olds. With that out of the way, my parents would have beat me if I was on video games for more than 30 minutes, and these kids are having their parents pay for them to play more video games? They won't have any skills when it comes to the real world. I'm sorry, but this is not okay. These kids will grow up to be lazy slobs, all because their parents want them to be better at video games. What real world skills does that give you? Little to none.
