Our Ultimate Parent’s Fortnite Guide is here!

While Fortnite has only been out for just over a year, this game has exploded. Our younger kids are still playing Minecraft  – Fortnite is what my 13-year-old son plays, non-stop.

Fortnite Guide for Parents

As parents with kids who play Fortnite, we are always curious as to what they are actually playing and doing online. With the HUGE popularity of this game (and the fact our teen son would play 24/7 if allowed), we thought we would put together a Fortnite guide for parents to explain all the things and update you with all the latest news on the game.

Fortnite Parent Review

We created this Fortnite Parent Review to give you all the information about this hot new video game to help you make the best decision if this game is okay for your kids.  

fortnite parents guideHere is our personal Fortnite Parent Review: If you feel that your child is mature enough to handle the game “stress” and won’t be scared by the zombie Husks, then go for it.

Do set time limits. Do watch what your kids are doing online. Engage with your kids, ask about their game play, what friends they are playing with. Consider the Fortnite parental controls. But as always, this is just an opinion and you need to decide what is best for your child.

Moderation is Key

While there are a lot of bad things that can be said about gaming, there are a lot of positives too. Personally, like all things – I feel like moderation is key. 

Game with Your Kids

Like Minecraft, Fortnite is a great game to play with your kids. We have had a rough year in the health department for my husband, but I am happy to say that the boys in particular have really bonded with their dad thru playing video games. 


Questions About Fortnite

I hope this Parents Guide to Fortnite has brought you more insight into what the game is about. While we covered an array of topics like how it’s played, how in-game currency or v-bucks work and how to set limits on Fortnite – I am sure you have more questions about this game that I am sure I left out.
