I had a similar problem with a Bear. I assigned a "scout partner" to each
boy at the meeting. Wherever "Bob" went, his partner went also. I did
this to each of the boys, so the "problem child" did not feel picked on.
They are less likely to take something if another scout is with them.
Hope this helps.
