Scouter C.K. asks how best to inform a Scout (and his parents) that the boy wasn’t fully prepared for a rank advancement board of review while still encouraging the youth so the setback won’t cause him to quit Scouting.
Scouter T.H. wrote, in our October issue, that his troop was finding it hard to recruit parents as leaders. “How,” he asked, “can we instill some sense of volunteerism and commitment to Scouting among these parents?”
A Scout is not welcomed in troop activities because the other boys say he is not friendly, reports a Scoutmaster. Readers offer ideas, including reminding Scouts to use the Scout Oath and Law in their relationships with other troop members.
In our September issue, G.P. said he wanted to start a Boy Scout troop and that he had taken the first phase of Scoutmaster training. “Besides continuing training, what else can I do to ready myself for becoming a Scoutmaster?” he asked.
