When my oldest boy joined Cub Scouts, he was quite focused. He didn't much care about the badges, experiences, or even the community involvement. What completely captured his imagination was the UNIFORM.
Since then, he has begun to climb through the ranks and has learned more than we ever dreamed. He has been given opportunities to laugh, to build his confidence, to help others. He has formed great friendships and met wonderful adults.
We don't regret anything about Scouting.
The adage says, "The uniform makes the man."
Maybe there is something to that afterall.
