still come to scouts and those who are ,"too tired". With Summer Camp,
some are going away with parents the following day and need to be
collected about 3 days early to ,"get ready" , some leave the night
before, others are collected by their parents on the way to holiday.
I used to have a scout whose parents always came early to pick him up so
that he could avoid packing up. They were so bloody smug over it too, and
hardly bothered to disguise what they were doing.
I tried giving him pans to take home and get clean, but they came back still
greasy, we even got his patrol to take their tent down early but he hid in
the bog with "guts ache".
I tried talking to the parents but they as good as laughed in my face.
Absolute pain in the arse, we were all glad when he left for "football

... But when I was running a group out in the suburbs most of our parent volunteers and leaders were very much the bright, professional people, who brought all their whizzy, business, managerial ways to scouting. ... Whenever we ask for volunteers, people to go on a rota, to drive the mini-bus etc it is invariably single parents struggling with large families, or people working long un-social hours as security guards & van drivers, people barely literate with no diary who do everything at the last minute, who have volunteered to help. ...
