Thorn, Roses and Buds

In a previous post I discussed reflection after games.  I still think that is a good way to get to know your boy without having to do one-on-one discussions with him.  Again, what he learns and how he learns will show what kind of boy he is.

Thorns and Roses is a way to reflect on the day or an activity.  It is a great way to end a campout.  The boys get to talk about what they didn't like (thorn) and what he liked (rose).  We now add a bud (what they are looking forward to).  This is a great way to also receive feedback.  It is a great way for the boy leaders to receive feedback.  "Brother Fishgutts, the boys didn't like this.  Maybe we could do it a different way next time." 

I encourage you to try it.
