Anand's Advice to All Chess Playing Children and their Parents and Coaches
I think Children should be allowed to enjoy the game. Parents and Coaches can provide the ideal environment for a child to play Chess. Titles and Awards is a nice incentive but should not be the only one. I get parents had children asking me for 10 tips to become Viswanathan Anand. I think there is only one. Enjoy the game without any pressures and learn the game through curiosity and interest. The results, whatever they are, will satisfy you. Even at the highest levels, chess has to be played with passion otherwise you pay for it dearly. This passion only comes when i play happily.
V. Anand, World Chess Champion
