If you’re a parent, no doubt you’ve heard of Fortnite. In fact, you’ve probably heard a bit too much about it.

This free online game is incredibly enjoyable, and causing many players to grow ever-so-slightly obsessed. For parents, this level of obsession can lead to some significant concerns. If playing Fortnite is causing your child to perform poorly in school, or leaving them locked away in their bedroom at all hours of the night, it is possible their playing habits are becoming problematic.

You’re definitely not alone, our Kid-Safe Bundle comes with the Family Zone feature, which, for parents of Fortnite addicts, just might be a God-send.
