A Scout is Helpful

At our last meeting, we talked about the third tenet of the Scout Law: a Scout is Helpful. What does that mean to you and to your Scout? Remember, your are his most important Akela (teacher). In demonstrating his faithfulness to this tenet, a Scout is concerned about other people. He does things willingly for others without pay or reward. Sometimes we might have to ask, plead, encourage, and even prod a bit - but our boys are learning by watching us. When you demonstrate your own helpfulness, point it out to him. And when you notice his helpfulness, make a big deal. Praise and acknowledge his model behavior.

For our October meeting, we'll be getting creepy and crawly in anticipation of Halloween. How does that connect to A Scout is Kind? Come to the meeting to find out...

A Scout understands there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. He does not hurt or kill harmless things without reason.

Until next time, 
Do your best -Dan
