ecently I read some reminders about behavior management and wanted
to share them. Listening is an important technique. That means giving the boy the opportunity
to express himself, whether as part of the group or alone in private
conversation. Be patient. It may take a number of listening sessions. Praise and encouragement are indispensable; even when a youth does
not succeed; he should be really praised for trying. Rewarding proper behavior will likely cause that behavior to occur
again. Reward can be in the form of a 'thank you' or recognition made by the group for
helping perform at a higher level. It can also take a material form such as a badge, a prize, or a chance
to go on a trip or to camp. Focus reward on proper behavior. As
a leader, you are to be a number of persons all at once to the
Scouts in your unit. The are times when for any one boy you are a friend, an
authority, a rewarder, a disciplinarian, a source of order, a
resource person, and a teacher.
