Well, it's up to you. I don't think Susan Polgar and two of her other sisters really liked chess when they were still 3 or 4 years old. Just like normal kids of their age, I think, they would rather prefer to play under the sun, shout and have fun while doing hide-and-seek, or simply running around aimlessly. The greatest influence of the Polgar girls to love and excel in chess was their father. It really comes down to the parents' creativity on how to make kids appreciate or have fun in chess. You want to make your kid see the entertaining value of the game first. Forget about its practical use as a great mental exercise first. And, of course, you want to make sure that he or she gets good physical exercise unless you have an ambition to turn your kid into a geek.
