In the kids. The kids want to play it, the kids want to be good at it, the kids want to be the best MUM BUY ME LESSONS OTHERWISE I SHALL SCREECH.

Twitter users were in disbelief that parents would hire "Fortnite" tutors.

Parents who are paying for Fortnite tutors are recognising the pressure for their kids to get good at the popular game.

Parents are reportedly paying about $15 to $20 per hour for skilled Fortnite players to give their children tips, or in some cases, $50 for training sessions that last three to four hours.

Winning a game of Fortnite comes with its list of advantages: bragging rights, which were previously reserved for the likes of sports personalities, season passes, battle passes, skins, weapons, V-Bucks, and much more. We're not sure if that will ruin Fortnite for the kids, but they'll undoubtedly move on to the next big thing eventually.

Another parent, Nick Mennen, bought lessons for his 12-year-old son, Noble, to take lessons.

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

The trend has also caught attention in the United States, with Nick Mennen paying $20 hourly for his son to receive lessons. If you're over 30 and/or have absolutely no interest in video games, Fortnite is a free-to-play game where 100 players land on an island, grab guns, build forts and kill each other until there's only one person left.

Coaches can be found through social media or through contracting sites, according to the article.
