I've read that there are a lot of kids that get excited at first when they join cub scouts which was the case with my son. Over time though he started pulling the whole, "I hate scouts and don't want to go" routine.
Now we are in his 2nd year and I don't know if I should force him. It would be different if he had friends there but it seems in our group that they are all kids with severe issues, zero control and a sheer lack of discipline from the parents. It would be different if only I noticed but when your kid gets in the car and asks what is wrong with the kids in his class makes me wonder.
Has scouts turned into a program where only kids go that dont normally have social interaction with other kids or is it just where we are at? I'm tempted on pulling him and starting over because I dont want him to think this is how all cub scouts are unless it really is.
He has a lot of friends at school so that isnt the problem. If I could best explain it, it would be if you took those one or two kids you hear about every year causing chaos and out of control in the classroom and multiplied that by 20 and stuck them in scouts that would be his den.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
