What if a parent has two sons with a four year age difference? This person
could be a TO for the first sone when he is Tiger aged. The person may not
feel comfortable (or may not be needed to) run the first boy's Webelos den,
so why couldn't he or she be the TO for the second son's den.
The requirement is just two years, not two consecutive years.
The Tiger Cub Adult Partners (GRs), and not the TO, are your potential den
leaders. They will move up with their sons if they remain interested.
The TO position, like the Den Leader Coach position, if often filled by an
interested adult without a son in a particular group, especially former
leaders with sons in Boy Scouts who chose not to register as an adult with
their sons' troops.
I am glad to see that National has finally recognized the TOs with their
own knot. It is a unique and very needed job.
