    Questions about scouting

    I really love helping the kids because I want to see them make Eagle someday. But the other leaders are ruining my experience almost to the point that I don't want to be there anymore. I've probably been involved for about 2 months now so I'm still having to relearn things and how everything works, and I have missed a few meetings due to work, but the other leaders just expect me to know exactly where each boy is in their books and where to pick up from. If i missed the past meeting, how am i supposed to know what they have or haven't gone over yet? I've tried to explain this but they just look at me like I'm crazy.

    Questions about scouting

    I have been an Eagle Scout since 2015 and I am currently serving in the military. I just got involved as a cub/troop leader close to where I'm stationed and I just have a few questions about some things I don't exactly agree with about the things the other leaders are doing. So I have been away from scouting for around 3 years so I imagine there have need some things that have changed since I was in. So at cub meeting they are teaching the cubs to memorize the scout oath and law and all things to do with scouts. Is that a new thing? Because I can tell the cubs are having quite a hard time with it. And at scout meeting the Weblos are told to attend, and they are telling both the Weblos and Scouts that they will have to work super hard if they want to make Eagle, and that it will take them all the way until they are 18 to get it. Making Eagle is definitely a difficult journey, and there were times I wanted to give up, but I made Eagle at the age of 15. Not once have I ever heard leaders tell scouts that they have to wait until they are 18. Does this sound wrong to anyone else or has scouts really changed this much since i was in?
