This is so neat - I just stumbled into here and I'm thrilled to see there are all-girl chess events!

My eight year old daughter loves to play chess with her dad. I enjoy chess as well but it is something they do together to spend time.

We've really tried to let her explore her natural interests so she plays all sorts of sports, does a lot of science and math stuff, plays the drums and is learning to skateboard.

We feel like it is so important to allow her to do anything she wants but she often finds herself around more boys than girls. We always look for chances for her to enjoy the things she loves in the company of other girls or at least mixed groups. So we are definitely going to poke around here and see what we can find her to get involved with in NC where we live.
