Thanks everyone for the replies.
In reviewing the Rank requirements, MT is not that far from 1st Class. He has to do the orienteering course, identify 10 native plants and plan a patrol menu. He does have 5 merit badges, which he proudly sewed on his sash (by himself with my sewing machine!) one night while I was at Committee. He did an excellent job.
At the last MB fair, he was gung ho and earned 2 MB's . This last MB fair he could have cared less, didn't do any of the preparation, so I left him at home. When the troop works on rank advancement, he tells me he knows it all and it is boring, but then balks at the MB fair where he can learn something fun. Right now his patrol is working on the First Aid MB. All they had left to do is the CPR. The MB counselor arranged for the boys to go to the local fire station and the EMT's helped the boys with the requirement. MT refused to go!
That's all he has left to do to complete the badge! "I already know how to do that". He dug in his heels.
He gets along with the boys in the patrol, but does not have a strong buddy. So he recruited a friend from school. That helped for a little while. He is not getting teased at school about being a scout, infact the troop has had 4 boys from the school join since January.
His dad could care less about scouts. Dad was a scout (2nd class, I believe) and had a bad experience and left scouts.
Is this 13 year old hormones?
Thanks for listening
