Teaching

Is there anyone who could offer advice on how to teach a eight year who really wants to get better at chess? The only thing I have found is the Daily Puzzle on the Chess.com homepage I have tried books before but they were a little hard to explain between 5 and 9 in the morning. I say this again help is appreciated!

    i myself am 11. but i have rating over 1000 . at first i wasnot interested at all. my father let me win on purpose. children like whatever they are good at . then i began to learn about new moves in chess [ forks , quick mates , pin etc]. than i played and realise things such as = if in any corner of the board ,  the qween is defended and is over the king, it is check mate. teach him how check mates occur, and how to make it occur. i can beat my father anytime easily using my tactics , i researced many moved in the internet and some, i noticed when i was playing.

    get himan opponent a little bit stronger then him. that is how i trained, and now we both have trained to high tactics level.

    like I said before most people want to play checkers because "it's easy" and won't play chess because "it's hard".

    PLAYING chess is culture

    hardly culture, it's more history

    IM Kacparov

    chess culture is not only histiry. chess itself is culture

    Chess culture is made up of history, and it's very narrow with a few highpoints and nowhere near very interesting once you leave the early stages of it.

    why not learn about chess culture then?

    It's culture! LEARN SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORLD OR BE IGNORANT
