When I was a kid I was fascinated by D&D and RPG in general. Not sure, but I think I already commented about it here. RPG had a big role in learning organization skills, team skills and planning. I would recommend and certainly will teach to my kids.
Every morning I needed to choose the list of speels for my spellcaster player and prepare for the next battle, make a plan for dungeon invasion and problem solving.
