Ask the parents to keep the phones for the boys during the pack meeting. Shouldn't be that hard.

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.

So one of the things I've noticed right off the bat... is seeing the proliferation of handheld video games by the Webelos and AOL scouts (and some of their younger siblings in the other dens) at Pack meetings. For me, this is not only disrespectful to the other dens, it's a clear sign the older boys are bored. Anyone run into this in their units and have some tips on weaning that out? Granted the AOLs will age out and cross over, but I really want to nip this in the bud but without dropping some kind of ban hammer on them. That's only going to breed resentment. Thoughts?
Nope, I would not allow that. And its never happened, because the boys are always involved in something at a pack meetings. They are fun, engaging, and they always take something away from them.
That being said, I would drop the hammer and ban them.
