Son could focus on video games Sydney Parents around the world are upset that their children have become tempted to play popular video games like Fortnite. He is spending a lot of time in front of the computer screen and how to get rid of this addiction. However, a shocking case has surfaced in Canada, where a father has rescued his son Jordan’s school in view of his e-sport career.
The move by 49-year-old entrepreneur Deb Herzog, who hails from Sudbury, has sparked controversy. He says that Jordan needed more time to spend as much time as he could for video games, so I got him out of school. Dave, a gamer himself, claims that when Jordan was just three years old, he placed a gaming controller in his son’s hands and that it didn’t take long to show that he had received a true gift for gaming.
At the age of 7, he became a skilled halo player and by the age of 10 he was already outnumbered by local gamers. However, when Jordan won his first halo tournament, after which he got $ 2,000 worth of gaming apparel, I realized that my son could make a career out of it. After this, his winning streak continued.
16-year-old Jordan is already one of the most successful Fortnite players in the world. This year it has shared a $ 30 million reward with 200 other players from around the world qualifying for the World Fortnite Championship. However, when his father claims that he has an innate gift from nature for gaming, his success is not just from talent. Jordan plays Fortnite 8 to 10 hours daily.
He spends a long time sitting in front of his computer and eating there, so that he can watch YouTube videos and talk with his peers, and attend online school classes. So, he does not go far from the keyboard. In view of this, Dave took Jordan out of school last year, which was initially opposed by his mother.
There was a lot of opposition to this decision as well. People also accused him of child abuse, to which Dave said it was just a matter of perspective. If it was a game, or playing the piano, people would accept it comfortably. But, it is a video game, so people are saying that it is evil. However, Dave does not regret his decision. He wrote an e-mail to Jordan’s old school explaining how much money Dave had won.
