Do you know playing chess increases your creativity, awareness, and problem-solving skills?
The earlier a person starts playing chess in his/her life, higher the brain functions. So, It is recommended to teach children to play chess at the earliest.
We need not enroll them in a professional chess coaching class and make them a grandmaster, just teaching them how to play and encourage them to play regularly will make wonders. But If you want to, feel free to do it.
I’ve experienced this first hand and I personally feel chess is one of the major contributing factors in my above average intelligence.
That’s why today I have gifted a Chess set to my close friend’s nephew who turned 5 today.
Actually, I learned Chess by coincidence. During my 6th standard, we went on a school excursion and I bought the famous Snakes and Ladders game for 15 Rupees, and the chess board was attached to the back with the pieces.
But, I didn’t know how to play the game and nobody in my family or village knew. Somehow I learned it after 6 months and started practicing later regularly with my History teacher and seniors and started playing well.
That’s why I recommend giving them to children even if they don’t know how to play, they will start learning but if we don’t introduce chess to them, then it will be a missed chance.
Even Adults should practice regularly if not daily to keep their brain active and stay ahead of the rest. So, what are you waiting for? Just order it on Amazon.
It’s been many years since I have played chess regularly (though had a chance to play a couple games a few months back) and wish to play with humans personally rather than playing with/through computers.
