Boys

Everyone loves board games. Anyone can have fun playing Monopoly, Scrabble, and Risk, but if your child really focuses on them, they'll teach him valuable strategy and negotiation skills. He won't even have to spend 1,680 hours -- the length of the longest game of Monopoly ever played -- doing it to learn them. Scrabble and Risk teach similar strategy skills while also teaching important subjects like vocabulary and geography. Don't think for a second that they won't provide countless hours of fun while everyone's learning, though.

Playing games also teaches valuable collaboration and social skills. Even if your child and his friends aren't playing with teams, it often benefits players to work together to achieve a mutually beneficial goal. And on occasions when they lose, it's important to remember that it's only a game and that being a gracious loser is just as important as being a gracious winner.
