"Scouts and Scouters are people too, will always eventually let you down."
Agreed, whole-heartedly! But it was time that I need to stop being an Assistant Scoutmaster and be a Father to my sons and come their defense! Believe me, I have bitten my tongue and held my judgement! I am not an Eagle Scout and am very flawed, but I tried to live up to the Eagle Scout and scouting ideals ... for my sons'.
Having done some research, you are in a tough spot.
But not as bad as some.
Consider if YOU are Scouting for you - nothing wrong with that, or to deliver the promise of Scouting to the boys, nothing wrong with that either.
In the best of all worlds we get fulfillment in delivering Scouting to the boys.
The questions I have are:
Does your son still want to go?
Is the child you are having problems with still around?
Is there another Troop you could do this "no stress - no more achievement required" scouting with? (I think you have indicated that your Scout has his Eagle -Congratulations)
Finally, do you have to be with Scouts to do the things you want to do, and go where you want to go?
When you answer these questions, you should be able to tell what you want to do.
