Tom, how about offering to drive some of the other boys to some of the
Troops you and your son are visiting. If your son is not the only one
with this "probelm" maybe the others will will have to concede that you
I could see this potentially happening in our Pack with my number 2 son.
I'm worried that his group of Bears will eventually fold for lack of
involved parents. My taking on his den as a second den doesn't really
help that problem much, though of late I'm getting parental support, but
no standout obvious leader-type for me when I can't "lead" this group any
more. My younger son is the oldest boy in his group. If he would so
decide to move with his brother and did the work, I wouldn't hold him
back. However, he won't know thats a possibility unless I tell him.
Always more a problem with the second scout I think. They've hung around
more and know more.
Build that bridge, Tom, be firm, but don't be a pain. Good luck.
