You and the Boys

Your responsibilities to boys are to:

  • Respect their rights as individuals and to treat them as such.
  • See that they find in Cub Scouting the stimulation, fun, and adventure they expected when they joined.
  • Develop among them a feeling of togetherness and of team spirit that gives them security and pride.
  • "Do Your Best" as a leader.

You will find the boys full of anticipation and enthusiasm. Their viewpoint is fresh and sparkling. Any adult who works with such raw materials cannot help buy catch some of those qualities.

In working with the boys keep your sense of humor. Don't wear your feelings too close to the surface. Many things that at first glance seem very serious are actually funny. Keep your leadership on a light and free level, and chances are, boys will respond in the same way. Then everybody gets more out of Cub Scouting.

Of course there will be challenges along the way. But you will find more than enough satisfaction to balance them. And as you help to strengthen the families and build your community, your faith in other people will increase as you see them working together on behalf of boys. That's a good feeling to have.

Example is not the main thing in influencing others.
It is the only thing.
