Wholesale Chess Supplier, The House of Staunton, Provides Insights into the World of Children Chess Players

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Wood chess board manufacturer, The House of Staunton, talks about the benefits of chess for children, and the life of a child chess player.

Chess players span a remarkable age range, from three to ninety-five and perhaps older. While the benefits of playing chess are similar across all ages, the life lessons children learn from chess are crucial. Exposing children to chess at an early age is advantageous for several reasons. Chess teaches children resilience, sportsmanship, and patience. It also boosts their creativity, improves their memory, and helps them develop their ability to concentrate and solve problems. The numerous benefits of chess are one of the reasons why schools encourage chess programs.

Many children enjoy playing chess at school and at home. However, for those who are truly passionate about the game, a world of excitement and challenge awaits. Like adult champions, child chess players learn theory and strategy and practice several hours per day. They play against others—both adults and children—to hone their skills. They follow a physical exercise regimen, eat healthy, and study chess. Like adult players, they must work to develop their stamina.

Child chess prodigies are often share that they were introduced to chess as early as three years old. At this age, it's best to play at home together. However, when they are old enough, many child chess prodigies join after school scholastic programs where coaching is provided. These programs offer them a chance to practice against other players and learn from the masters.

However, when introducing children to chess, it's important that they see the game as fun—no matter how strong their competitive spirit or passion for the game. Children should continue to develop friendships, play outside, and experience other aspects of life. This will not only nurture their passion for chess, it will provide other experiences that can be useful to a growing chess prodigy.
