Children and chess

There is much discussion and many ideas about how to get children, especially young ones, involved in chess. A common problem is how to maintain a child's interest and enthusiasm while they develop the skills needed to actually start winning. Here are some tips.

When a child does play an adult of much higher skill, or a computer chess program, there are still ways to keep the child's interest.

You don't need to deliberately let a child win. The above suggestions will give them a fighting chance at winning, but they still need to work for it. See Information for Beginners in the KChess Elite Help file for details on using KChess Elite for novice players.
