It may be taugh in the *BSA* training. But here,in Australia, at least on my
taining, we were given ways of coping and who to go to if we are not. This
included the paid people outside the program.
Just a question, do the BSA weekly youth meetings including Scouts only run
for a hour a week? here, only Joeys (6 & 7 year olds) really run for a hour.
Cubs generally run for 90 minutes, Scouts for 2 hours and the Venturers rang
anything from 2 to 3.5 hour meetings, depending on the group. Also, no one I
know has ever been told it's only for a hour a week. We are told it is going
to be more that.
