Now this I find interesting.....do you decide what is the boys best?
If he decides he does not want to go into Scouting, but has done 5
years of Tiger and Cub Scout work, you are going to say because he
does not want to continue he has not done his best?
I seem to remember something that I stress to my new parents each
year: Try and see things through your sons.eyes and not expect too
much. Remember its not the other boys best or a previous sons best,
it is THIS sons best. Every boy is different.
So while you may judge and decide what is a boys best, I leave that
up to the parent and the boy.
