And, by the way, one of the main strengths of the Scouting programs is that we are not locked into treating every boy exactly the same way. For those boys who are self starters and are able to achieve on their own, I think our job is to stay out of his way and give him hints, encouragement and support as he needs it.
For those boys who are not as motivated or as smart or who may have problems at home, we may have to be more of a friend and mentor.
Each boy is an individual. Each one has his own sets of needs. Each will succeed in his own way. It is up to us as leaders to help him find his particular way to success.
