Chess removes the personal element present in everyday decision making for kids and helps them practice making decisions and seeing the consequences.
Kids forget that their actions lead to reactions. By playing chess, kids develop a realization that they need to consider how others will react to their actions.
From reducing the risk of Alzheimer's, treating schizophrenia, to improving memory and brain functioning, chess has a number of health and mental benefits for all ages.
