I have never posted on this board, but I am an old time member at ivillage and always received good advice when I posted, so I thought I would ask everyone here.
My son was so gung ho when he crossed over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. He has never been very focused or ambitious, so when he told me he wanted to go all the way to Eagle scout, I got very excited. He seemed to love it for the first 2 or 3 years and went on lots of campouts and was pretty involved. He has been trying to get me to let him quit for the last year or so. He can learn so much by sticking with it, but I don't know if I have it in me to fight it any longer. Now with the school year starting, we will have to pay a new round of dues and I will have to struggle to get him to go to meetings again. Should I let him quit? Has anyone experienced this situation before?
Thanks for any feedback you have!
