I've got the same problem, only with 3 boys. Alone, each one is fine (and
maybe actually commendable). However, when any combination of the 3 get
together, the resulting team is a perfect example of the whole being worse
than the parts *grin*
I've got a conference scheduled for this coming Monday with the boys, their
parents and the committee chairman to discuss their behavior and
consequences (this is prior to heading off to camp). We'll see what
happens. The camp is 4 hours away, and I'm going to warn them that they'll
be sent home for behavior problems. This oughtta get the parents'
attention, since I won't drive them home, nor will I have any of my
assistants do it - it'll be the parents' responsibility to come and get 'em.
Good luck :)

We have a Scout in my troop that constantly misbehaves. He has no
respect for any of the leaders (adult or boy), and is always causing
problems. We have warned him, given him "time-out" at meetings,
talked to his parents, and even suspended him from troop activities,
all the time explaining that his behavior was the reason. None of
these things have helped.
Is there anything else we can try, short of asking him to leave the
troop, to help this child calm down?? It seems to me that he is one
of the few boys in the troop who REALLY needs the program. We've
tried everything we can think of, and would like some advice from
somewhere, because if we could keep him, and make him behave, I think
he could get a lot out of the program.
