How long for rank?

Why do you think an eager achiever is a problem? I suggest you not hold this
youth back. After all, there's enough electives for a whole lot of arrow
points. After that, there's always the athletics and scholarship pins. I don't
recall anything printed that says that electives can't be worked on until after
Wolf is earned. True, the points themselves cannot be awarded, but the
electives can be worked on. If this boy is in second grade, his Bear crossover
will be in June and he'll have another trail to conquer.
Remember, when the Akela signs off on the achivement or elective, that's it.
There's no place for additional reviews, just recording. If his parent's are
this involved with him, then he's already reaping a major benefit. I wouldn't
douse the flame of enthusiasm. Maybe this boy just works at a faster pace.
