This is my fourth year as a GS Leader. I said yes to accepting a new girl and she was at our latest meeting. She interrupted everyone, put them down, talked constantly, got up constantly, wanted another snack, another drink, and was just downright mean.
How would you approach the parents? Say GS may not be for her, try something more athletic? Say she has one more chance but needs to behave? Or three strikes of disruptive behavior at future meetings and they need to pick her up?

Can you make the parents stay at the meeting with her? Then you can concentrate on the other girls. We had to do that at a Cub Scout den meeting and the "trouble" kids didn't come back because their parents didn't want to stay with them.
