Parents tend to worry when their offspring are so enthralled by video games they spend much of their free time up in their room, not studying or reading but playing online. But did you know there are ways to make money playing video games? 

Your kids probably do. 

Take for example, PewDiePie – they all know who he is. They may not know his real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. And they may not know his net worth is estimated at between $14.5 million and $30 million. But they know he is the most famous ‘YouTuber’ ever. 

Most people can’t make as much as PewDiePie has, because he started doing it back when few people even knew money could be made playing video games. But, just because you or your offspring won’t likely become the next most famous YouTuber, doesn’t mean there isn’t money to be made.
