Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: SPL read ASPL
SPL read ASPL

The thread I've been reading regarding the SPL who did not communicate on
the phone with his troop, reminded me of a similar situation with our troop.
One of our ASPL's has proved reluctant to carry out some of his duties as
prescribed by the SPL. Both the SPL and SM have talked to the boy, several
times, both with no success.
There was an incident, last week where the ASPL, had a episode, which
involved another Scout and resulting behavior that was truly not "Scout"
like. This behavior happened in front of some of the troop, and the rest
had heard about it by the end of the meeting.
The boy just turned 14, and is a very young 14. The SPL and the SM want to
"fire" the boy from his duties immediately. Further complicating the matter
is the fact that the boys mother is the Troops committee chairman, and is
valuable resource to the troop.
Any ideas on how to handle this situation?
