One of the other scout parents has “concerns” about Tommy attending Boy Scout camp for a week without Doug there also. The person who was asked to relay this information only gave us one quote. “Is Tommy annoying on purpose?” I asked the concerned parent if they are annoying on purpose. No. I would not do that. I might eat their face off though. No. I won’t do that either. In fact, I won’t even be invited to the meeting. I would put my hands on my hips and give the parent one of my patented looks while explaining that we didn’t allow Tommy to join scouts until he was capable of self control and displayed no behaviors that you wouldn’t experience from any other boy there. No. Tommy is better behaved than many of the other boys in the troop. They just don’t have a diagnosis that their parents share honestly with the troop. For some reason, Doug thinks he can handle this discussion with more tact than I can. I might tactfully sign the things I am not allowed to say. On the other hand, I think I’ll just let Doug handle this one.
