You are in a very tough situation. Is there another pack in your area
that would take you and your boys? If not perhaps you could ask someone
from your District or Council office to sit in at some of your meetings
for help. Your pack may find itself having to pay damages at your
church or school if this continues. Your Cubmaster should be made aware
of this possibility. You could also be held liable if a child is
injured during one of these free for alls.
Perhaps you could contact a local Boy Scout Troop and ask for some of
their older boys to come and act as Den Chiefs (in this case also as
wardens). I found that quite often the cubs would listen to the Star
and Life and Eagle Scouts before they would listen to me or other
adults. If your parents are in attendance I would think that they would
question why they have the only boys under control.
Your Cubmaster appears to be sorely in need of further training.
Good Luck, Please don't give up on Scouting. I remember some very
tearful nights when I had my first den. I now have a Life and a First
Class Scout and couldn't be happier with everything my family has gotten
