Enoch Heise’s post “How to Spot a Broken Chain of Command” should be required reading by all Scouters and fathers that give a damn about their sons’ upbringing. More than that, it shouild be required reading for all BSA employees and “leaders” — starting with district and council executives.
There are two ways that this chain can be broken. The first is by an absence of clearly defined leadership. Scouts become confused. They will get frustrated because they don’t know who is supposed to be calling the shots.
Do you know who runs Scouting in your area?
You should. Find out and retake command of your son’s scouting experience.
