Families That Play Together Stay Together

Playing chess with family
The internet times have made family bonds confusing. We send messages on our family group chats but barely spend time in the family room. Family dinners involve everyone on their devices and an awkward amount of silence. As an ardent chess player, I recommend adding a game night to the family sessions to save family time.
What better game to begin this bash with than chess?
Chess is a great way to get everyone to stay away from their gadgets and to get their minds active and running. Family tournaments can happen with each member competing against each other, and learning lessons can take place using books. Further, for kids that do not know chess, parents could bond with their kids by teaching some basics and making it a routine activity for the children to have chess lessons with mommy and daddy.

If you are a lucky parent and your parents are keen on the game, weekend getaways could happen by taking the kids to nearby tournaments. These tournaments could also turn into a fun picnic session for the family with long drives and yummy food alongside the tournament games.

The benefits of chess to young minds is a well-known fact among CHESS KLUB readers. Hence, adding chess time to the family routine will help nurture the house’s developing senses. As a parent, adding moral values to your kids’ lives is equally as important as academics.

While playing chess, every move a child makes teaches them that they are solely responsible for their actions, so they have to face the consequences. There is no better way to make a child realize the fundamental truths about life.

Whether in a game of chess or reality, a person should be bold enough to accept their own mistake and progress towards finding a solution. Learning chess and playing chess as a family will add the capacity to solve problems rationally and calmly amidst the family. Chess will help analyze situations that a family faces with unity and dedication.

Playing a game that encourages learning is the perfect way to incorporate educational play into your child’s life in a fun, non-stressful way. Chess sharpens critical thinking, encourages thoughtful planning, enhances math skills, stimulates verbal abilities, increases emotional intelligence, and increases the Intelligence Quotient.

These are all skills every parent wants to see their child develop, so why not do it in a fun and healthy way?

Without further adieu, add this multifaced game to your weekly family schedule and go back to having real-time fun with your loved ones. Use chess as a medium to build a connection that may have gotten lost in the world of technology.
