I've been tossing around this idea of having my 9 year old join this group b/c I think she needs to meet new people and b/c I want her to focus on helping others. I don't want her growing up being so self-concerned like I am. I'm thinking that I'd like to join the group myself :) lolAnswer Question

When i was in girl scouts it was about a lot of things. Team work, setting goals, respecting yourself and others, self reliance, helping people, and we did learn about the environment and how to 'be green'. They also taught us about drugs and alcohol (that was in juniors) and once they even brought in one of the girl's baby brother and taught us how to change diapers, feed and hold a baby and infant first aid. We went on a lot of trips too. A lot of camping. We learned how to make a fire and cook on it and how to fish and stuff like that. I had a lot of fun. And my mom was almost always there with us. I hope it hasn't changed much. I want to put my girls in it too.

As a former girl scout and leader I can tell you that they have a great program, but it is all leader dependent. If the girls and the leader want to focus on one area then it will be all about that. If they want to explore all the areas then they will get more out of it. You should definitely volunteer. Everybody brings new talents to share.

Another option might be Keepers of the Faith programs for girls called Keepers at Home. She (and you) can learn most anything you'd like together and develop her character along the way. Keepersofthefaith.com is their website.
