IMHO, parenting experience is a sufficient qualifaction for this
badge. That said, the badge does refer to review & approval with both
parents (or guardians) and the MBC. This, in my mind, is a specific
case where a parent probably should not be the MBC for their son (even
though it is allowed by Advancement Committee Policies & Procedures).
