November 2017 - Participating Parents

CubCast - Wed, 2017-10-25 21:00
A loyal listener contacted the CubCast mailbox and wanted to know if we could devote to entire episode on clever ways to get every parent involved in Den and Pack meetings. Well, we aim to please, so we invited the National Director of Cub Scouting Anthony Berger who was also a Cubmaster. His pack started with 8 boys and within a few short years grew to 35 with lots of parent participation (although it didn’t start out that way). Amy and Aaron discuss with Anthony the clever methods that he used to get almost every parent involved in the pack.

It’s one thing to figure out what to do when your own child is having a temper tantrum and being disruptive, but what if one of the other Cub Scouts is having that tantrum? We know you have this question because real-life Cub Scout Leaders and CubCast hosts Amy and Aaron have come across this situation. So, we reached out all the way to Sweden to chat with Tina Wiman, the author of the book Sulky, Rowdy, Rude?: Why Kids Really Act Out and What to Do About It. Such an interesting discussion … you should join us!
