Quiting Scouts

March 5th, 2013 at 06:59 am

My youngest son who is 11 yrs old is quiting scouts. He has been wanting to quit for some time now. I have told him in the past to hang in there, it will get better. It hasn't. He loved it when he was younger, but now that he is under diferent authority, he can't stand it. So yesterday, I officially let him quit. Kinda sad for me as I like him to do that sort of thing, but with him feeling the way he does for so long I didn't see any other way. In his words (in a text after scouts one night) "The comitee is corrupt and I'm like 85% on quiting this piece of crap they call boyscouts." Now I don't condone his language, but it is pretty funny...

Hubby is feeling better this morning. He actually feels like gettting out and running errands with me. I told him it is too soon and he would regret it later, so he is staying home. Smile

I have a credit at the chiropractor so I am going to get a massage. They can't give me an adjustment as it's still too soon after surgery.

Tomorrow is DH and my 20th wedding anniversary. Damn, we are old! Where did the time go? Heard thru the grapevine someone at our wedding said they wouldn't give us a year. Guess we showed them!

    It sounds like the best choice for your son. My girls have quit things, too. I also have them keep trying before I give in. Smile Happy Anniversary! (We are coming up on 17 and it does go fast.)

    My boys didn't find scouts to be a good experience, either.

    Sometimes things just don't workout. Or they just aren't a good fit. I'm sure he will have something to fill that spot soon.

    Happy Anniversary. We are working on year 6...so I love to still see couples claiming 15, 17, 20, 50, etc. Smile

    Bad adults can certainly spoil the experience for anyone in kids' activities. I don't blame him for wanting to quit if he was dealing with an authority figure or several he felt was corrupt.

  6. Looking Forward Says:

    If he wasn't having any fun (which is mostly the point) it's best to let him quit.

    Congrats on the upcoming anniversary. Smile
