    what would i have done? i would have sat them down and talked to them find out why they feel the way they do.I would have told them you have come to far to give up and why i think they deserve it and told them to get it done.

    I am aware of never push never pull dont kick dont poke. Just seeing kids go so far and then more less stop just kills me. Im told that I care too much and I should step down from SM and let someone else do it. Ok Im to give up my Boys to someone that doesnt care I DONT THINK SO. Thanks for all your comments and help just wanted to see what everyone else thought about the subject Maynard

    no dont get me wrong not nagging not pushing them along just giving them a kick now and then i dont see anything wrong with that. you give them a task and they do GREAT they handle what ever you put in front of them. but to just let them be? maybe im wrong?

    To push or not to push that is the question? I know a lot of leaders that believe that if a Scout wants to advance or finish a merit badge the scout will come to them even if they are idle for a long period of time. I understand that some boys are just in it for the camping but they have to do something and the ones that are so close to Eagle I just cant let them go with out them making eagle. Some have worked hard to get to Life rank and then get into sports or get loaded down with homework or just fall off the track. So my question is should you just let them slide thru scouts and turn 18? Or keep a Scoutmaster sheet that tells him just where each scout is at anytime and start pushing the ones that need to be motivated ? (Scoutmaster sheet is a spread sheet (huge help) that tells me exactly where each scout is Rank, Dates, Merit badges and so on updated every month by troop advancement)
  6. awards

    Dont get me wrong it was a $1.50 check nothing big at all. And it went to national and not any further never even a decline. I guess Im just a little distraught about leaders getting awards for doing nothing!!!!!!!! You see leaders on every camp out and work all day with the kids running a great program. Put them in and they get nothing. Then you have leaders that do nothing and there getting knots and awards left and right. Just not right for the leaders that you see giving there all and receiving nothing. We have put leaders in for awards and go to the awards dinner and some of them dont get it for some reason but then you see the few that dont deserve it get the real high awards like one is the Silver Beaver well I guess he has a friend thats is a good writer.. all this is is somthing i was thinking about and how wrong i think it is.........
  7. awards

    thats just an example i guess my statment is that leaders shouldnt be put in for awards they didnt earn.and i know 2 leaders that keep putting each other in for awards and ones hey dont really earn but still fill out the paperwork for it.
  8. awards

    Just wanted to add I do have a problem with leaders being put in for awards they didnt earn !!!!!!!!! 1 example is the St. George Award for religion and the leader has nothing to do with church or mentoring in religion. you look at some of the leaders and see just what awards they have and just smile knowing they didnt do a damn thing to earn them!!!!!
  9. awards

    Hello All Have any of you ever put a leader in for an award that had to go to national where they cashed your check but never sent the award. And when you call about it you tell them you put someone in for the Scoutmaster's Award of Merit they tell you that has been replaced by Unit Leader's Award of Merit I asked them ok so where does that leave me? I was told to resubmit under Unit Leader's Award of Merit and try again. But what about the check that was cashed it may not have been much but its the point that they have awards and you have to pay for them they cash your check and tell you to resubmit. You resubmit and need to send a new check go figure
  10. What is the age of a ASM to be able to do a SMC

    Hi All Ok here is how its going. The father called national and talked to everyone that would listen and called the council and talked to everyone there also. And he tried to take the council advancement Chair on by calling national but I dont know what came of that or how it ended up. I got in touch with the scout and set up his SMC & BOR told him the date and time he told me he had to check his calendar and will let me know. I told him I would hold on while he checked that took about 5 minutes he came back and said that that date was not going to work for his so I said well you can come the last Monday of the month and do your SMC and the first Monday of the month for his BOR. His statement to me was theres too much trouble in the troop and that he just doesnt want to do palms anymore I asked if I could have it in writing he told me yes also did you tell your father and he said yes. He stated that all he wants to do is go camping I told him thats fine with me. So thats how it all ended! Thanks everyone for your help.

    well the council advancement chair is the one telling me to redo so i dont thing council will or could have anything to say. The dad is a guy that more then likley will call nationakl as soon as he finds out then they will have to call the CAC and sort it out
  12. What is the age of a ASM to be able to do a SMC

    Hi All well i am going to set up a SMC and BOR. make sure i have the place, time, and committee set up. then call the Scout and let him know that he is to be there for this if he cant make it i will set it up for the next month. i will not go out of my was to make special meetings just for him or his dad anymore. on the 3/18/08 i wonder if he will show up? what do you guys think (Y or N0)
  13. What is the age of a ASM to be able to do a SMC

    emb021 the CAC isnt going to let the last BOR fly if the Scout wants his smc & bor he has to go with the troop and the cac will be therefor this one. trying not to punish the scout by holding the palm that he has the merit badges for. the father is the one to blame here for finding the back doors not the scout im sure if your dad told you this is what your going to do you would do it
  14. What is the age of a ASM to be able to do a SMC

    just a little update I have the council advancement chair calling me to set up a BOR & SMC for the Eagle +35 palm The CAC isnt real happy with the dad or the scout and is going to sit in on the BOR
  15. What is the age of a ASM to be able to do a SMC
