RE: Chess: More than a Sport

in Sports Talk Social2 years ago

My father taught me how to play chess when I was young. It does help in improving a person's way of thinking. It teaches us to anticipate the results and consequences of each action we do. My favorite rule: touch move. Once you've touched the piece, you need to move it and you need to stand by your decision. That's why my husband and I are also teaching chess to our daughter now. Isinama na namin sa homeschooling curriculum niya. Hehe


I can assume you really had a great relation with your father. I did not learn chess from my father, but I learn from him about DIY/home repairs and several engineering concept that I can only learn in the field. For chess, I learned it from my older cousin. I may not be great at it, but It surely help a lot with decision making.

sinama na namin sa homeschooling curriculum niya.

That is great. I will help your kids develop critical thinking in a fun way rather than a bookish way. It is also a good bonding activity for your family.

Thank you for your engagement!
