Cowboy wrote:It boils down to Scout involvement. Too many of our "older" adults think that if they hold the boys back they will continue to have interest in Scouts. We have all seen a lot of boys hit Eagle and then walk away. Unfotunately the leaders responsible see it as an effect/cause, not cause and effect. My son loved scouting. Now that he is fighting to complete his Eagle he has begun to dislike it. He does intend to have VERY little involvement with Scouts because of this. He would have stayed much more active had he received support from the leaders. BTW: He does still have Scout Spirit. He also plans to help otehrs reach Eagle, and wants to have all of his adult training completed BEFORE he turns 18 to ease the transition.
