As a Cubmaster, I would ** NEVER ** let a leader exclude a boy or boys from
scouting activities simply because the boys were unruly or loud or whatever.
We have had meetings that honestly were in shambles because of the boys
rambuctiousnes (sp), but that is no reason to exclude them. Often, the
reason the boys are "out of control" is because we as leaders are not doing
our jobs. It is vitally important to keep the boys active in things that
interest them. Trying to maintain tight discipline will only alienate the
boys and cause them to drop out.
