IT IS SAD THAT PARENTS HAVE SO LITTLE INTEREST IN THEIR KIDS

I do not have any ideas to help you recruit leaders but we are facing this same problem in our area. We only have 130 scouts in our SU. As a matter of fact we may have to cancel Camporee this year because we need 200 people to attend in order to have it.

I think it is sad that parents cannot spend one night a week with their kids. I know that most parents have more than one child which can make it very difficult but I feel that many more parents should be able to be involved.

People have kids who are sweet and innocent and then they grow up into teenagers and such and don't want much to do with their family and the parents wonder why. Where were the parents for them when they were young?
