My Webelos den visited a Boy Scout troop meeting the other evening. This troop has a good mix of younger and older boys in it. One of the older boys (16 or 17 maybe?) consistently talked back to the 17-year old SPL. The SPL did a great job of keeping his cool while trying to coerce the boy to behave more appropriately and follow directions without the constant attitude. I don't know what the history is between these two boys, but there appeared to be some animosity. I think the one boy should have been sat down and given a serious talking to about his disrespectful behavior. Should the SM have stepped in and had a talk with the boy who was being rude, or was it OK to just let it go because the boys need to learn how to get along on their own and it didn't result in a fight?
