I think this sentence is the key. Your boys behave because they know you
expect it and won't tolerate misbehavior. The others know they can get away
You will have to start with the leaders & the parents. Unitl they stop
tolerating this things won't change. Get the parents & leaders together
without the kids and talk this over. There may be others who feel the same
way you do and if enough can agree on standards of behavior that should take
care of your problem (it may take a few weeks for the boys to get the idea).
If not enough agree you may want to move your son (and maybe his whole Den)
to a different Pack. Or your Pack could split, which might not be the worst
