Helping scouts with social anxiety

I have already begun talking to our more gung-ho ASMs that like to be rigid in rules and boy-led to rethink some of their attitudes and interactions with him.   Hard for them since they feel why should it be different for some boys.  And I hate the term "Safe place to fail", leaders need to not focus on failure as the best way to learn.

Fantastic way to help him. It’ll make him want to come, provide a safe environment, etc. If the leaders are still all “gung-ho” after talking to them, I would tell the leaders to not to interact as much, as it can also cause more issues to the scout then he already has.
