scouts-l Mail Archive for June of 2000: Growth Plans and other Euphemisms: A Caveat...

In my earlier post I forgot to mention that two weeks later we were
approached by the same Scout concerning his BOR. First question asked by the
committee was "Are you prepared to continue now?" "Yes sir! Ask me anything
you want, I'm ready". Very few questions were asked after that (or even
needed to be asked) since the boy obviously had already passed this BOR in
his heart. He wasn't boastful or arrogant, he was just supremely confidant
in what he had accomplished. After we sent him out and called him back in,
we made a point of congratulating him on his new found confidence, and
encouraging him to continue developing it.
