Sorry, but you are taking a risk in assuming that as long as there are two
boys with a lone adult it is safe. There is nothing to stop the two boys
from concocting a story. And having the same story coming from two boys
makes it more believable to law enforcement. And hey, guess what? Even your
own mother won't believe YOU!
Two adults at all times, meetings and outings included. Period, end of story.
The only time you are considered even remotely safe alone in the presence of
two boys is when one of them is your own son.
Please, please for your own personal safety and reputation, do not put
yourself in a compromising position. That is what BSA means by two deep.
How many more times do they have to say it and how much further do they have
to go to make you all understand? IMHO Youth protection should really be
called "adult protection."
