First, Thanks in advance to all that respond.
I've been a Scoutmaster for three years now, one thing that I cannot
understand is some parents inability or disinterest in helping their son's
Troop. We have tried asking for help, assigning specific jobs for parents,
and guilt tripping parents into helping. All with little or no results...
Am I correct in thinking that with 30 boys in the Troop I should have at
least 15 adults to help? I am the last adult leader in the Troop to go
through Basic Leader Training in 1994, Currently we do not have any
Assistant Scoutmasters, and only have a Troop Committee Chair, Advancement
Chair, and Treasurer.
Should our Troop "require" adult help when a boy joins? "Require" adult
Thanks again for your responses!
