SIMPLIFIED CHESS FOR KIDS & THE MORAL LESSONS
After deploying this practical teaching method, those children were able to play the Chess game as opponents after 4 hours of intensive practical training…
Along the line, the "L" concept of the Knights' moves often appeared to be the hardest to understand, however, they later got it right after several real-life practical instances were deployed as teaching methods…
The moral lessons;
In the past, several research results have clearly shown that Chess is one of the most technical indoor games.
Hey! Kids learn Chess faster than adults, perhaps, because they have little or no worry at such early phase of growth…
Have you ever wondered why most adults couldn't learn how to play Chess? It's because they often find it hard and cumbersome to master the principles of the pieces' moves and their distinct roles.
However, another research result have clearly shown that kids have the intellectual capacity to become great Chess players, not only that, they can easily master the crafts of all the pieces. Peradventure, such kids could grow up with the tactics of "Chess in mind", they could always apply its principles in solving real life situations, most especially, thinking about the pros & cons (opportunities & risks) before taking any step in life, while also having the consciousness that their today's decisions would unavoidably affect their futuristic lifestyles and the outcome of their destinies.
To the 5 types of Nurturers (as stipulated in the NETISM theory), most especially the biological parents, you should always have the consciousness that, in this era, the endless "screen-times" at the disposal of your family are often depriving your subjects of the knowledge of viable indoor and outdoor games - such as football games, hide & seek games, Chess, basketball, drafts, scrabble, and etc. Research results have clearly shown that, whenever kids are at home after school hours, they would rather get their eyes glued on different screens rather than engaging in physical activities or exercises.
Sequel to this fact, you have the obligation to be proactive, most especially in the course of creating a responsible digital culture that suits the uniqueness of your home, have more parent-child physical interactions (guard against technoference), and lastly, you have the obligation to regulate the screen access of your kids/wards by putting necessary rules/policies in place for the usage of different digital gadgets.
In summary, it is quite detrimental for a home to have unlimited "screen-time", such digital obsession could affect the healthy-living (obesity) of the kids in question, digital addictions could also lead to academic difficulties of thethe victims (perhaps that's the major reason why the Nigerian Covenant University currently have an effective screen-time policy in place for her students), and sometimes, different degrees of depression could also arise due to the addictive usage of some digital devices.
To cut the long story short, technology is powerful, much more every digital technology at the disposal of humans is more powerful (reason being that it comes with 2-sides; the endless opportunities and the infinitesimal risks attached), remember, power without control might be detrimental on the long run.
In summary, in this era, parents/guardians should not allow "screen-times" to affect the physical activities of their subjects.
