    • Easy solution - keep activities at the unit level, avoid the WB snobs AND the uniform police
    • LOL. Our 3 year old grand daughter told us the other day that "We don't say no". Different problem for her young parents, they have been saying no so much that the meaning lost it's effect on our very bright grand daughter (we saw it coming). So, they are now using sentences instead of the word "no" to stop the little princess. And starting with please. I know they will figure it out because they want to figure it out. But, "no" is still used at Grammy and Papa's house. We just do it better. 😎 Barry
    • I hear this a lot with new parents...of my Grandkids.  Constantly asking them what they want to do, or bargaining with them.  Kids that age don't need to give their permission.  
    • Exactly what 69RR said.  I see woodbadge snobs, just like uniform police.  In our council, woodbadge will cost $250 each and some just don't have it in them right now.  Then there are the WBers working their ticket and should get support from the wogglers.  WB is good for the person when the time is right and they are ready.  No one should be pushed, ridiculed or looked at for whether WB or not.  Then there are the staff (3 beaders), and 4 beaders that have hierarchy.  Just use the program as you need it.  I wear my beads often, but the woggle and WB neckerchief less often.   But, I still have to support my patrol critters...now that is just Darwinism as nature dictates.    
    • As an scout with a frayed neckerchief and faded pack, I watch new scout adults on campouts and cringe at some things.  The one thing I try to suggest politely is state the desired act, not what you want changed.  Example:  I heard a lot of adults yell "stop running" versus "walk or slow down".  It is a small thing, but those young minds process much differently than mine.  I have to stress what I want them to do rather than what not to do.  Kind of like homework options:  What homework do you want to do first rather than the adult choosing.
