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.

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?
