Good morning, L'ers
I looked at the website Jon Pearl offered. The link to a list of entities
withdrawing support for scouts was not functional when I tried it. Several
In my experience, both personal and volunteer, sexual predators shun the
light of day. Generally, they operate under the cover of legitimacy. It is
not the public protestations of the somehow disenfranchised that we need to
combat. What lurks in the shadows of life, the predator of the child, is
defeatable only with open information and appropriate practices.
We have two-deep leadership principles which protect both child and grownup.
So aren't there those folks in Scouting with clear, successful ideas on
educating the Scouts and Scouters in the areas of teaching appropriate
discernment of behaviours? In other words, don't we have materials for
teaching the scouts how to protect themselves?
Do those materials need to be updated? What are the most recent editions?
Who has had experience with facilitating this training? If we are going to
discuss all this semi-veiled business, can we not move to the solution part
of the program?
