Our leaders have started a new policy. When we bring our Brownies to the meeting we are required to come inside and sign an attendance sheet. When we pick them up we are required to sign them out. There is also a space on the sheet for the leader to check that WE received the papers/permission slips/whatever.

Because I have a toddler and the troop meets at a really inconvenient time (dinner hour!) I cannot stay at the meeting 90% of the time. But I do offer to help the leaders in other ways--contributing needed supplies, running errands, things like that.

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?

It is hard to get some parents involved in anything their kids do. I see kids walking alone to their events where other kids have their parents & grandparents in attendance.

DD2's troop of 4 will be ending this summer as the troop leader's daughter will be to busy in high school to continue.
