Do you know what your kids are learning?
Chess can help young people in so many ways. Some of the most commonly known benefits are:
Improve logical thinking skill
Improve critical thinking skill
Improve decision making skill
Improve problem solving skill
Improve strategic thinking skill
Improve cognitive abilities, etc.
However, I am aghast to see that so many kids are taught absolutely the wrong way. How can I tell? I am a professional and I can spot the problems immediately when I watch them play.
When kids just randomly move pieces, there will be little benefits, if any. And since the majority of parents do not know much about chess, they cannot tell if their kids are really learning, or if they are being taught the right way.
I will publish a video about this very important issue tomorrow. Stay tuned!
