this in response to my request to ds to make sure his trunk was packed for camp. i asked if he had netting ready to go and i got that response. sure you know what to do. yeah. tell me that when you wake up at midnight in camp and have to go to the latrine and find you don't have a headlamp or you only packed one pair of sox.
I make suggestions, they take them or leave them, they learn their lesson the hard way and then they secretly adjust next time, all the while keeping to themselves their knowldge that mom was right yet again.
11. he and his brother each have their packing list from the troop. i had just noticed that there were. still two netting sets in the camping shed when there should be only one if they both packed one. i am a natural consequences mama. but I also know that a couple of the scoutmasters would go ahead and purchase or give up their own gear to kids who forgot something. so i want to have a bit of oversight j
