Parent's Guide to Chess

A parents' roadmap to their child's fascinating new hobby - chess. The good news from teachers and other parents: kids who play chess not only have a lot of fun, but they also:

* do better in school
* learn self-reliance
* develop lifelong analytical skills
Even if you're clueless about the game, it's vocabulary, and it's potential for your child, the questions will come fast and often sound like another language:
* What do you think of the Petroff Defense, Dad?
* What do I do with an isolated pawn, Mom?
* Where can I find other kids to play chess with?
* I'm ready for a chess coach - where can I find one?
* How can I play in a tournament to get an official rating?

Here are the basics to help any parent guide their child to get the most out of an occasionally confusing, but extremely rewarding opportunity. Parents can teach their children important skills while strengthening their relationship and sharing an activity that can serve as a life-long bond.
