    in Self Help

    Young people, who grow up in an inner city environment tend not to think before they act or look before they leap. Yet, if critical thinking was to be applied before making a move, many of life's problems could be avoided.


    The game of chess has been played for over 15,000 years. Many rulers, kings and queens have used the game of chess to practice ways to move forward in life. They knew that this game helps improve concentration, memory, planning skills and much more. Chess helps to enhance brain power and heighten the ability to develop thinking for improved decision making that leads to better life choices and outcomes.
