Two or three Scout-Lrs did a nice job discussing ideas
for packs and dens last year. Colorado Jan was one and =
my mind can't retrieve the other ones yet. Try Dec and =
then Nov archives using TCU's Jon Eidson's Guidelines.
We were responding to a Boy Leader's request (Cameron).
Scouting Magazine had a Cover article during the same =
time frame called "Den Discipline"
We have some Pack and Camp Training Honchos out here
who might chip in on this common difficulty in the =
Real Goal of "A maze of cub and parent fun" and
"A Lot of Learning"
After you get their great ideas it sounds like you need =
a meeting and possibly need to borrow some videos from =
your Council for Pack training.
Other ideas used are:
- Ask your Unit Commissioner or District Commissioner =
to come for a visit. They have a few secret =
weapons that could work with your trouble makers
one called experience the one called "An Expert
has a Title and is someone I don't Know."
- Go to your District's Roundtable and talk it over.
(Of Course bring the Trouble Makers with you.
( They might learn by reflection rather than feeling
( criticized and become the Discipline Teacher.)
A kind thought for your trouble maker parents is to remember
you or I never had to get a degree in Parenting or Marriage.
We are hopefully continually learning as we go and yes we =
will have errors and misgivings along our rocky road.
Good Luck with all those smiley faces.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
