Parents are a critical support element for the scouts taking on the challenges of learning and developing leadership, communication, ethical decision making and team work skills.

We have found that learning these skills is greatly enhanced when the parents are providing backup and support by discussing the topics, providing examples, motivating the follow through of the scout's leadership responsibilities and simply providing encouragement and positive support for taking on leadership responsibilities.

When a new parent visits our troop functions they always comment of how impressed they are that the scouts can lead the meetings and outings.

Parent support is a huge confidence builder for the scouts.
