It is good to hear that you put your son into Boy Scout. The next step I would like to encourage you is to become a leader. If father or mother is a leader it is more like the boy will do well in scout. Parents involvement and you get to share your life with your son growing up. I am a cubmaster. I put my nephew into Boy Scout and he is working on his Ealge project right now. When I put him into Boy Scout my nephew was an C, D, F student and didn't give a care except TV and video games. Now he is doing quite well in school. I have to say early involvement was so critical for him to stay in scout. Because of my involvement as a leader my 20 years old nephew is working full time (in the Air Force), goes to college and on the weekend a scout leader. Hi there! Thanks for the encouragement. Right now I don't have plans to become a leader, but I've made it clear to the Scoutmaster that I'm available if they ever need some extra help. Why not? My son is enjoying this year as a chance for a little independence. The leaders of his troop are great. They have quite a bit of experience helping young men to earn their Eagle rank. I am very comfortable allowing them to help him grow a bit without Mom or Dad around. This trip he learned a bit about packing the right clothing for the weather. I told him twice what the temp. would be (40s), and that it was likely to rain. He still didn't pack a jacket, and by Sat. night he was feeling a bit chilled. His big shopping trip ended up being delayed because the other boys in his patrol ended up not camping and he joined the older boys for meals. Hopefully he'll do the shopping next time.Always ;-)JoannTMF Hunzi
