A Note to Parents
Parents want the very best for their child. They want to see their child succeed academically and then grow up and exercise full potential. Here at ICA Kids Online it is our mission to help your child do just that.
As an ancient game of intellectual pursuits and critical thinking, learning how to play chess provides a child the intellectual training needed for life skills that will help them learn how to navigate courses and make successful choices later in life.
The human brain is conditioned to “predict.” Anytime you imagine, dream, drive, work, or consciously or subconsciously take action of any kind, outcomes and results are predicated on those actions.
The correlation between Chess and life is that both require you to constantly look, assess, and make predictions while usually facing opposition of comparable strength and skill. In school, in sports, in work, your child will have to make critical choices to maneuver his or her actions. Making choices is constant and crucial for survival and success. Chess is the most objective vehicle to teach the confidence needed in developing and practicing these skills.
Chess is, as Emanuel Lasker, second world champion once quipped, “above all a fight!” The fight to meet challenges face-on and make choices that could predict survival and success in a situation.
