The world 9th chess champion Tigran Petrosyan says.”Chess is a game by its form, an art by its content and a science by the difficulty of gaining mastery in it. Chess can convey as much happiness as a good book or work of music can.”

Chess is a game, which children love to play and it can become an excellent tool to develop their hidden skills, brain development, calculating skills, right time management and etc.,

One can get acquainted with chess pieces at the age of 3 or around 4 and start fully involved starting ages 4\5, depending on one's abilities.

Online chess classes can be taken starting the age of 5, again strong desire and abilities are the important factor.

In the very beginning children are taught the so-called “the alphabet of chess”, introduction of the pieces, the actual goal of the game, tactics, strategies etc.

One can benefit from learning and playing chess in many different ways. Cognitive benefits include the refinement and maintenance of high-order thinking skills such as: problem-solving, decision-making, planning, and even critical thinking.

A study by Dr. Robert Ferguson about critical thinking showed that students from 7 to 9 grades who started playing chess, their common sense and critical thinking scored up to 17%, compared to peers who don’t play chess.

In addition, chess training and practice supports the development of vigilance and awareness.

Chess training and practice promotes the development of mental sharpness and cognitive vitality among players. Chess helps to estimate the changing of positions, think for both sides and therefore make decisions.

Chess improves one’s mathematical skills. Maths is often perceived as a science capable of solving only abstract problems and nothing more. But that’s not so. Maths is about logic, and the ability to play with variables in your head that are known to improve chess.

Chess improves verbal skills. Dr. Albert Frank studied children who played chess for two hours a week. As a result, he concluded that a game that is largely independent of language can actually improve verbal skills because it engages areas of the brain associated with language, including those responsible for logic.

Chess improves one’s emotional state. Many people think that chess is a game of cold calculation, but it is important to understand that the game is inherently designed for two players, which in turn improves the emotional state, as well as develops psychosocial interaction.

Chess also makes you purposeful, because you always seek to defeat your opponent, and the consequence becomes the following: a leader mindset emerges in your thinking.

Finally, chess can serve a great source of fun and brain stimulation.
