I agree wholeheartedly. That sends the wrong message regarding what
Scouts is all about. It's not about making Eagle. That's not one of
the aims of Scouting. It's not even more than a small part of one of

On the other hand, my husband and I are kicking around the idea of
requiring our boys to earn the Traffic Safety merit badge before they
can drive. . .
