Guidelines For A Leader

  1. Always plan the meeting in advance. Write down your plan and share it with your assistant and Den Chief.
  2. Keep the boys occupied at all times; not just with busy work, but with activities that fulfill the Purposes of Cub Scouting.
  3. Be sharing with your criticism; generous with praise.
  4. Be fair and consistent with discipline. Don't permit one boy to do something you would discipline another for doing.
  5. Treat each boy as a very special individual.
  6. Establish your rules and stick to them.
  7. Begin and end meetings on time.
  8. Set a good example by wearing your uniform.
  9. Use the Cub Scout sign to get attention...don't shout or yell.
  10. Give the boys a chance to let off steam. Plan den meetings to alternate quiet activities with active ones.
  11. Be firm in a friendly way.
