Chess
The mind, like the body, needs exercise to keep it at its peak form. And, one of the best ways for kids (and adults) to exercise their minds is to play chess. Playing Chess develops brain functioning which in turn reduces the risk of anxiety and depression. Chess is a ton of fun, can be played by all ages, has infinite potential for players to improve, and is played all over the world!
Here are some important benefits of playing chess which we hope will compel parents to encourage their children to play:
• Concentration and Memory
• Math and Reading
• Logic, Critical Thinking, and Creativity
Studies conducted by the University of Memphis have found that children who play chess significantly improve their visual memory, attention span, and spatial-reasoning ability … all important factors for success in school.
The need to focus on problem solving and the process of thinking through move variables are important traits that help improve children’s math skills. In addition, studies have shown that because chess requires children to use cognitive processes such as decoding, analysis, thinking, and comprehension (all skills required for reading), chess playing kids greatly improve their reading skills over non playing kids.

Playing chess requires a lot of "if-then" logical analysis and "whatif" scenarios, all necessary ingredients for developing logical and critical thinking. In addition, studies show that chess boosts creativity, most dramatically in originality. Researchers attribute this boost to the process of imagining all the possible movealternatives which trains the mind to play with possibilities … the cornerstone of original thinking.
• Think Through Solving Complex Problems
• Chess improves spatial skills
Chess helps children learn and practice thinking through, and finding solutions to complex problem. This ability is vital in chess since players calculate variations, visualize the changes, picture a position some moves down the line, analyse it extensively and mentally manipulate the images. This is important because playing chess requires solving complex problems with their sub-problems.
As a parent, one necessary thing that you must do is prepare your child for those problems, teach them how to solve them and move forward. And, the earlier you start, the earlier you will have independent, selfconfident children. Chess is the brilliant example of developing those skills. Let your child be confident, a problem-solver through playing chess.
