I have the similar problem with some boys in my troop
we currently have 3 boys in our troop that are on the drug
known as Riddalin (spelling may be off). two of the boys are
usually okay, the other can be quite annoying and doesnot
respond well to authority. Also, there is a nother boy, who has
a long list with the police. Just yesterday he was caught at
school with a pager, and refused to hand it over to a teacher.
In the troop, He distracts the others, and it hads gotten to the
point that I , and the other scoumasters have to continusly
yell and scream at him to get the point across.
Now, if he attends a campout his father has to
accompany him. There was an incident at a summer camp where
he stole shaving cream from the trading post, and he took a
knife and slashed the camps tents! The troop h s gotten som so
bad that we have a code of conduct. This includes wearnings,
time-outs, and reports foiled filed with the Board of Review.
But that makes no difference since he makes no attempt to advance.
My advice, have a meeting with his parents and your units commitee,
or scoutmasters, or at the board of review. If the problem escalates,
contact your counciul service center for more advice.
