I'm struggling with how to make him realize that it's important that he strive for following the guideline of being a Cub Scout. I'm also struggling with the whole Christian aspect of the scouts. We are trying to include Buddha in his learning to be a scout, but some of the literature and guidelines make it a little difficult. I want him to be a scout. Both my husband and I were scouts. I feel that it is a good learning and growing experience and that the scouts actually do help to produce fine young individuals. We just need to make sure to hold him accountable and to continue to nurture the paths of Buddha.
