I have been out of town on a Venturing Whitewater Trip (had a blast of
course) so I waded through this thread curious to see the different
sides of this discussion.
What I fail to understand is - why do we (Scout Leaders) just not let
the Scout's parents make a decision if they want a signature on the
Certificate or not? When our Troop received our first Eagle I (as
Committee Chair) simply gave the parents of the new Eagle the choice and
told them to make their decision apparent to National. Clean and simple
solution. And, interestingly, they (the parents) never asked me "why"
the choice - they simply accepted the facts for what they are.
