Starting from a can is fine, but merit badges should be awarded for
merit, so too should first class requirements. If the requirement says
cook, then they should cook or at least have the experience of trying
their best. Building on success is a great way to develope confidence,
but a boy knows a sham when he sees one. The success is not very sweet if
it is not held in high regard by the boys who earn it and those who
strive for it. Troops that hold their boys to high standards have Scouts
that appreciate those standards.
