What can we, as parents and leaders, do to encourgage advancement of the
boys (without being accused of being a "Eagle or Merit Badge" mill)?
We have one boy who will not do his run (last item) for Tenderfoot, the
older boys not advancing in a timely manner. My son needs to do his
animal tracking for Second Class.
Can you give me some - SM minutes? Words of wisdom for PLC? Anything?
What I'm not seeing is the boys having the desire to advance. They like
to camp well enough. The parents seem to have the drive to advance.
