have you thought of making him in charge of fund raising... he seems to
have a knack..... and takes inititive....
Actually I was most concerned with your statement that "parents" and by
this I assume you ment his and not other parents in the Troop, are at
wits end.... This sounds like a much bigger than just his involvment
in scouts..... do they expect you to solve their problem with their son?
I hope not.....
I like your attitute of not simply wanting him to be gone... but instead
your desire to help him.. Unfortunately there just might be a much
bigger problem here.. Not to be one to push voodoo and pills, but have
the parents thought professional help?
