If you read Scouting magazine and follow various blogs, you’ve probably heard about a bunch of new merit badges in the last year or so, including Chess, Welding, Kayaking, Search and Rescue, Programming, and Game Design. While new merit badges can be exciting, it’s easy to get confused about which badges can now be earned and which have only been announced.To help clear up any confusion, Bryan Wendell at Scouting magazine recently added a calendar...[More]

Scouting lingo is an alphabet soup of abbreviations and acronyms; think PLC, SPL, ISLT, NYLT, NAYLE, etc., etc. I’d like to add one more abbreviation to the mix, courtesy of Scouter Jeff Taylor from Cincinnati: CFD.CDF stands for Confusion, Frustration, and Danger, and it represents the only times adult leaders should interfere with the Scout-led troop program. Jeff said adults in his troop memorize that abbreviation and use it to determine whether they should...[More]

My last two tips have discussed ways to keep crying kids from becoming a distraction during courts of honor. Here’s one more approach: offer childcare. Recruit a few volunteers to baby-sit and include a note like this in your invitations: “Nursery services are available, so please support our wonderful volunteers who are ready to assist you and your young children.”Where could your volunteers come from? Check first with your Scouts’ sisters. You may well...[More]

Submitted by Laurie HendrixMy last tip (on dealing with crying children at courts of honor) struck a chord with Eagle Scout mom Laurie Hendrix.

But...[More]
