When you want your kid to master something, you find an expert. If you want them to have an amazing backhand, you work with a tennis pro. Would you believe there are even Fortnite tutors? Yes! USA Today and The Wall Street Journal each had an article on this!
Your initial reaction is “these parents are over the top!” Mine too! When I read the article, though, I actually had compassion for the parent. They have watched their kid struggle and become frustrated. Their kid felt embarrassed at school and judged by friends. They needed help! Parents are always in search of experts so their kids feel successful, knowledgeable, and reduce frustration. While I can live with my kid not being good at a short term fad, I can’t do the same when it comes to their education.
