Call a special meeting of the parents and pass the Wolf Handbook among them
den and ask them to take a chapter or two. Then nobody is stuck with the
entire job of doing it entirely on their own. Tell the parents this is the
only way it is going to work for their boys and you are sorry. But if they
really want their child to participate this will really work if every one is
willing to do their share.
We had a Bear Den that did that last year even though there was a full time
den leader. They assigned a clerk and she did the paper work and the
parents shared the advancements details. It worked well and I think they
may be using that technique with the Webelos.
