It is quite a cliché, but saying that a kid can teach a lot to their parents is totally truth.
I’m not only talking about unconditional love or putting someone else’s priorities in the first place, but after 6 years being a mother I learned so much more.
It is all about experiencing new things, and doing things you probably wouldn’t if you were not a parent. Besides other more deep feelings, my little son know is teaching me to play chess.Yes, the game board, chess!!
He started playing chess in the computer and got interested in playing the real game. I’ve never learned to play chess when I was a kid, in my house nobody played chess at that time. I have always thought it was too difficult and really never tried. But my husband knows how to play it, he learned in his childhood and recently started to teach my boy the basic rules.
Now, after a while playing against the computer and playing with his father, my little son is already able to teach me the little he had already learned. As we’re staying a lot at home, due to the heat outside, we’ve been practicing together a lot those last days.
After loosing every game to my little teacher, yesterday I finally could trap his king! My first checkmate!!! I felt proud for myself, but also for my little son, if it wasn’t him I would probably never learn it!
