One thing I have always been concerned about is the punishment of telling
the scout that he may not go on the next "Camping, Overnight, Fun" (take
your choice) trip. I feel that such a punishment is appropriate, but how
do you actually make it a punishment?
Suppose the scout says he didn't intend to go on that trip anyway?
Suppose he really didn't intend to go on that trip?
How do you make sure you are depriving him of something he wanted to do,
not something he might not have done anyway?
Or can you assure yourself of that?
