Tom Lynch's post about his older boys being embarresd about Scouting
brings to mind my recent post about turning the whole thing around on
them. Question them further on why they got into Scouting and why they stay.
Also delve into the Scout Oath and Law with them. Ask them what's really
uncool about all this. The idea is to get them to recognize negative peer
presure and question why they are yielding to it. If they are giving in
to this a school ect outside of Scouting what other pressures are they
going to give into next? Remember this is a game with a purpose, sounds
like you have a great opportunity to turn it around on them.
