I do not agree with this. While I realize that parent participation is
important, I do not believe the kids should be excluded from
scouting because their parents will not help. As I have had
similar problems, I know how frustrating "phantom parents" can be.
Sometimes -- the kids with the "pantoms parents" are the ones that
can benefit the most from scouting.
