My question, how do I go about telling the leader of my sons troop without
getting him mad at me and my son? They also want my sons records and I'm not
sure if he would give them to me. Any ideas?
I wouldn't worry too much about whether the leader got mad at you ar not.
My approach would be to tell him that your son has decided to transfer to
another unit because your son thinks it will better meet his needs as a Scout.
I would then request that he provide a transfer record for the new unit.
You should already have the information you need such as date of ranks, MBs,
etc. If not, it can be obtained from your council office. Your son's Scout
book should have a record of any work completed toward rank advancement.
