We have a small pack. Currently one Webelos I and one Bear, 6 wolves, 3 tigers, 5 Lions.
The Web I was meeting with the Web II, until they crossed over. The Bear was meeting with Wolf Den. Bear is really into wrestling, and tournaments are on the weekends, usually when we have den meetings. He came to a few in Sept and Oct, and just made it to the last one we had today. Didn't see him Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb as far as den meetings go.
His parents have been able to work with him and get his book signed off, and he had completed everything needed. If we did a project, he did it at home. I have no reason to think his parents are just "rubber stamping" his requirements. I know them personally and are trustworthy and good people.
In his case, would you award him his rank? And I think this will happen next year as well.
Then the Web I kid. Not sure what to do about him either. I don't have a problem with him meeting with us on the Den level, but I am not going to do Webelos stuff with Wolves.
Parents of these two boys are generally supportive, want their kids to be in scouts, etc.... But realistically I can't help my wife with the Wolf Den (1 of my sons) with the Lion Den (other son), get the new Lions den off the ground come this fall, and run the pack AND run a Webelos program for the two boys who have no den. I have other parents helping out, but I have to draw the line somewhere on what i can do before I am burned out.
Web I dad was a den leader for one round and that crashed spectacularly. Bear parents have 7 kids, so....... no.
