I have had similar problems with the boys and girls. Let me explain.
We have a Troop of which I am the Scoutmaster, and a Explorer Post, I am
one of the Assoc. Advisors. Our groups are a "little" different from that
of your "normal" BSA units...at least the adults (we are ALL
Scoutmastership trained)anyway. You see 80% of us are Bikers, (good sized
boys too!) we all ride Harleys...(we teach the kids how to rub two Honda
pipes together to start a campfire <G>..) Anyhow, Whenever we have had a
problem with this type of thing one of us (usually me) pick up the kid one
afternoon from their classroom (timing is everything), 5 minutes before
the let out of classes. We of course take the L O N G way around the halls
back to the Bike...You can guess the rest.
Next day is usually most interesting for the kids..."Hey who was that bad
looking dude that picked you up".... "That was my Scoutmaster of our
Troop". I have inherited a couple of boys this way. It works for us.
