    I'd like to thank Kingdom_Hearts for the insightful and kind words about Benjamin. As his first teacher I encouraged his parents to keep him in Scholastic unrated tournaments, but there was little competition for him in them. His parents enrolled him in a professional chess club and school and in his first 2 months his rating peaked. He was thrown into games with teenagers and he just gave up. I told his parents to wait until he wants to play again. I am happy to report that he is enjoying playing Chess once again, but it is not an all consuming obsession and for that I'm happy. Benjamin is fluent in three languages and also possesses a gift for music. I am as proud of him as I ever have been.

    Kids who start early will have more time to improve.

    Since this thread is 20 months old, I guess he's an old man, pushing seven now. G-night. Smile

    This is strange because my USCF rating never went below 1315 and I've only been in like 25 or so tournaments...

    He was lucky because he went in tournaments. I am 10 and still haven't played a rated OTB game.

    It is just that I am very unfortunate. I love the game and can beat most CMs and FMs.

    But no one acknowledges my talent. My dream to become the youngest World Champion is tarnishing.CryFrown

    Really? So an 1191 rating is awesome?

    You haven't played on here either. Why?

    You did the right thing yyoochess.  Kids need help pursuing their passions, but friends and a normal life are way more important.  Chess may be helpful to development in some ways, but there are plenty of life fail types that are very good at chess.

    Painful but true.
