I've hired coaches for baseball. Private lessons for drums and French horn. And gotten some help with academics along the way for my kids.
But I don't know about hiring a tutor so they can learn how to win a video game.
Parents tell the Wall Street Journal there's a lot of pressure to play... and if your kid loses, "you can imagine what that was like for him at school."
It's like always being the last one picked for dodge ball.
And there's real money to be made if you excel in video games... just like professional sports, music, etc.
And apparently some good money for those who tutor, too. At least it's a job your kid might like, if they're really good at gaming.
