I keep seeing posts that state variations of this "required" parent
involvement and have wondered how these troops deal with the parent that
just ignores the requirement?
I have had only 3 parents out of 12 families show up for a "manditory"
parents meeting and can't seem to get through to the others that it is
their child and they have to get involved. In fact some of them seem to
just barely slow down when they drop little Johnny off for a meeting.
