  1. Here is one definite reason! ---------------------------------------- Why would the people who I have worked with for the last seven years of my life make me ashamed of them tonight? The new pack Leaders were never told about anyone being left over from the previous pack....hence my son was forgotten. I do not blame the new people aka Leaders only those who told them there weren't anyone else from the old pack! Then tonight, I was explaining how the Committee made up of Leaders parents treasurer, decide on what the pack is doing aka a Christmas Party! At first, I was misunderstood. They be
  2. Well I know in my neck of the woods we have an Executive Director. Now I have a similar situation and was informed tonight of what the current E/D has said of me to others. I was told that I am going to get the boot out of the Pack which is fine. Yet he went on to say rude ignorant things regarding my character and etc. I would like to know who I can discuss this with. Who is the E/D's superior so I can have these issues addressed. Since the problems arose, I have only asked for guidelines and where to get the answers I seek for the Troop or Pack. I never have told anyone what I personally fel
  3. Since I have been trained as a SM and then went thru WoodBadge plus attend all of the RoundTables, I have lots of resources and information that I take back to the Troop. My troop had a Key 7 a while back and since then we have improved upon the errors we were doing. As well as having the SPL do a more active role. I am not ashamed to ask for help from anyone but if everytime in the last three or so months, I have attended RoundTable and felt that I was being questioned by the Executive Director or the Camp Commissioner( not sure if that is this person's correct title) I have felt under fire.
  4. P.S. I don't know who the Troop Commisioner is at this point.
  5. First and foremost, Thank you all for the wonderful support! It is at Roundtable hence my nic. And its coming from the Executive Director and Camp Commisioner who backs the E.D. up. It usually is when they take me aside and talk it over. This all started because I was inquiring about the Cub Pack not the Troop. The E.D. and Camp Commisioner asked about the troop then. I had told them it was decided we weren't going this year. I didn't let them know that next year is still a possibility. My troop did go to camp despite previous camping experience at Webelos extended that was really disasterous
  6. I would appreciate a copy of that book. Please email me and I will give you the details. Thank you.
  7. I have attended every roundtable in my district for the last 5 years. I am the person who does the refreshments. LOL Anyway, the Roundtable staff makes it a point to ask others how to improve roundtables and to help leaders with problems or training that they are seeking. Sometimes one side is more interesting than the other yet it depends on who is interacting. If you are new then ask all your questions there is bound to be someone who has the answers you are seeking. I also find that this is a good way to have valuable resources for your pack or troop. If it is boring then that is a need tha
  8. Regarding Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. The basic concept of both of these organizations is to make our children aware of their duty to their community thru service, their school by interacting with other children, and their God. To make these children the future generation better by what they do in the Scouting movement. The BSA has chosen to be on one side of the proverbial fence regarding the Gay/Lesbian issue where as the Girl Scouts have chosen another. I personally have talked to all three of my children and told them just because we dont agree dont mean we exclude someone from our lives b
  9. I have been a new SM in my son's troop. Well for the last three months everytime I attend the monthly leaders meeting, I get questioned about what I am doing and what the troop is doing. I was told tonight that if my troop doesn't go to camp then I will be replaced as SM. I only am doing the SM cause the boys had no one else. I am not doing this for adults just for the boys. These boys were doing things like cub scouts when I first started as SM now they are running the troop but Council thinks I should force these boys into doing something which they have already decided not to do this year b
  10. Oh Thank you all! I want to clear up some things first. This troop of boys was established before I became Scoutmaster. The reason why they don't want to go to other troops is due to the fact the Leaders and boys of the other troops make them feel uncomfortable and usually the Leader asks me what do you do? How do you do whatever task your doing with them? Those are the usual two questions fired at me. I have JLT planned in the next couple of months. I have just learned of this wonderful training for the boys. I do like knowing what I am doing right and wrong especially the wrong things becaus
  11. Hi Thanks for the help and encouraging words. I am planning on having the boys in the troop do some Junior Leadership training in the next few months. I liked the idea of having the boys visit another troop. That would be great however, the troops around my area aren't that nice to us,which is being taken care of by Council. I do thank you again for the insight and help. You have made my day.
  12. I just started doing scouts with my son 6 years ago. This past January, I stepped up to be the Scoutmaster. There are several key important factors that others should be aware of: The troop is small(6);Two, of the three boys have a disorder i.e. A.D.D.;Three, the boys have no one to lead;Four, if you put the leadership fully on the boys they all want to quit. Five, the boys believe or think that I am running the meetings (if they knew that more and more they are doing it, I know that all three would quit Scouts) Now this is what I have been doing since finding out that these boys werent doin
