Several of my kids are members of various BSA units, including 2 different venture crews. I'm a gung-ho person; my motto is "if you join, you'd better be prepared to follow the directions and put lots of effort into and then we'll all have a great time!" Unfortunately, the mottoes of both of these crews seems to be more along the lines of "Our battle cry is "kid-led" but we can't be bothered to send them to leadership training, so we just founder a lot and don't get anywhere." It's driving me nuts! I'm only a parent and I offer to help, but the official leaders tell me it's working out fine; the kids are doing dandy. But they're doing nothing. How do you go about encouraging them to train the kids and schedule meetings more than "when we think about it," and encouraging the kids to DO SOMETHING?
