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