If this is the worst of the behavior that this young man exhibited, I
think that he was unjustly asked to leave his original troop. The
program is there for the boys and unless all attempts to modify his
behavior have failed, and he is disruptive to the morale and well
being of the troop, he should have been allowed to stay. I am just a
Cubmaster, so I don't have the knowledge of what is required of the
older boys and I don't know what a "normal" troop meeting is run like
anymore. I spent most of my youth in Scouts and I cannot remember a
boy ever being asked to leave. All yong men need to be given a
chance. Maybe the opportunity to join a new troop will help. Anew
set of leaders, tho it seems as if you may have already formed an
opinion, a new set of boys. Boys will be boys and they will try the
limits of the adult's patience. I think you should take him in, but
not let anyone else know of his history. If there was such a problem
with the lite-sticks, maybe the leaders should have removed the
problem(the lite-stick) rather than the boy.......
ok, I'm down of my soap-box......
