In my daughter's case, this isn't a joke. She desperately wants an outdoor program, but the moms in our upper-middle class town just don't do "that sort of thing". So I am stepping up to give her the same opportunities as her now Eagle Scout brother has had.
So, for example, when you are teaching Cubs to use a pocket knife can opener, you might call it a "Bear claw" then flash a picture of a grizzly paw, a pastry, and a polar bear in a Santa cap, no verbs required. In exchange for a few cheap laughs -- bare clauses -- you get boys who will enjoy their task because you've tapped their imagination.
The lesson, as I had to tell one of my kids about a teacher, is that sometimes in life you will have to deal with people in positions of authority who do not do the right thing.
Kids are taught to respect adults, with good reason, but sometimes the adults fail in their responsibilities. It will happen throughout life, sadly and you have to learn to cope with it.
Not every situation is the same, so the means to deal with it can be different. Fortunately, BSA has an established means for dealing with this one.
