at another time and explain why the language is inap- propriate. Make sure that the adults in the troop are aware of the language they are using themselves. We should not expect Scouts to act differ- ently from how they see us behave. Anyone who uses vulgar


language knows it is vulgar. It’s a choice, and they can learn to make better choices.


Skipper A.L. NORMAL, ILL.


ZERO TOLERANCE I would excuse us both from the area but stay in eyesight. I would explain to the Scout that foul language is disre- spectful to the troop and the leaders and tell him that it

Scouter S.D. WARWICK, R.I.


WRITE IT OUT I have sat down with a child, one on one, and handed him a notebook. I explain that neither of us will get up from the table until he writes a three-paragraph essay in which he defines the offensive word he used, explains what he believes others hearing his language think and feel about what he said, and describes how he believes his parent or guard- ian would react to hearing the offensive language from him. I don’t usually have to

do this with a child more than once.


Troop Committee Member S.C. EASTPOINTE, MICH.


AS A ROLE MODEL … When a Scout in our unit is heard using profane language, we remind him that he is among younger Scouts who look up to him as a leader. Swearing doesn’t make you cool or fit in; it makes you look bad and uncultured. There are better ways to express your feelings.


Assistant Scoutmaster T.S.S. LOCKPORT, N.Y.


CHOICE (OF) WORDS I often remind boys that they are Scouts, and more is expected of them. Then I remind them that they


should be fine having what they say and do relayed to their parents. Using profan- ity and crude language is a choice, even for adults. A simple test: If you don’t use certain words in front of your mom or clergyman, then you are exercising that choice. If you can do it for them, you can do it for everyone.


Scoutmaster T.W. WOODSTOCK, VA.


INVOLVE THE PARENTS If I have a problem, the parents in my pack are very involved in how their boys behave. I have no problem having them intervene to correct the issue in the future.
