Advancement - Boy Lead

As a member of the District Advancement Committee, if a boy contacts me via email or phone to meet regarding approving his Eagle Scout Project and then mom and dad take over or I can hear them telling the boy what to say in the background, I wonder how much leadership they are going to show on their project.

Mom and Dad, step back.  It may be ugly but when a boy does it, it is supposed to be ugly.  I like it that way.  Boy lead and boy done doesn't mean it will be done right - it is supposed to be a learning process.  You don't have to feel pressure to impress me.

I hope you had Jr. put Mom and Dad on the line so you could tell them this firsthand!
