What is a merit badge interview?
The comment I made "I would never turn down a scout at a BOR" was taken from the discussion basing this on a scouts age. I would turn down at scout for advancement because of his age, is what it meant
If a parent feels that they have to be there coaching the scout every step then that is my fault as a scout leader. Either the Scout is not getting the traing and support he needs from me to be successful, or I have not shown the parent that their son is in a positive supportive environment and is trained and trusted to be able to function on his own in most situations. Either way the problem is not the Scout's so it will not be held against him in a BOR.
Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures wrote:The members of the board of review should have the following objectives in mind when they conduct the review:
- To make sure the Scout has done what he was supposed to do for the rank.
- To see how good an experience the Scout is having in the unit.
- To encourage the Scout to progress further.
