parents should lay down the law not a stranger
I dont think a stranger should “lay down the law” ... we agree.
I am only noting that there are many parents (including single parents, given our modern society) that do look to scouting to help provide good guidance for the boys
Lord knows I realize the scouts can’t do everything.
I was only attempting to recognize that scouting does help with this for many, many boys, and indeed this is a key factor why many parents seek to enroll their boys in scouting these days.
I will quiet down, I never intended to raise an issue with anyone other than to say that parents should pull their kids OUT of the new scouts which appear to be both approving and possibly enabling bad choices of “lifestyles”
put the boys into a scout-type organization that at least tries to uphold proper values and that encourages the boys to try to learn a positive (traditional) “lifestyle”
if that is controversial, I withdraw the comment.
It was meant to be quite traditional and not upsetting to anybody who is likely to read it here.
Thanks for your input, I realize I do not have all the answers.
