Play Chess with Kids
Teaching chess to a young child is of course possible but should be done carefully. The game of chess is fascinating, varied and contributes a lot to the development of thinking, but if taught incorrectly - may deter the child for many years and that is a pity! Therefore, do not rush!
A good point to start with is by playing "pre-chess" games with your kids – meaning playing games only with certain pieces on the board so that your child can understand the strategies associated with each different piece.
Some examples of pre-chess games include:
The Memory Game,
the Pawn Game,
the Wolf & Sheep Game
and the Officers Only Game.
