This is a problem close to my heart. I have a son who
almost has his eagle rank. I know him to be a wonderful person with
good ideals, but he has a lot of trouble dealing with the younger
scouts. Their noisiness and "pre-teen" behavior gets on his nerves and
is quite difficult for him to handle.
I fear that when he finishes his eagle rank, he will want to back out of
the troop somewhat, to do things more at his level.
I have had discussions with his on this subject, but I am not sure he
understands everything I am trying to say.
It's possible that this is a common problem, and I would like to hear some
other points of view.
