  • I personally would make him go to cub scouts. Its a good way to teach him responsibility.

  • he has an OBLIGATION & RESPONSIBILITY to BOTH baseball & cub scouts. I don't see how one over rides the other. Personally if he would rather go to baseball I would let him since they are both activities that he signed up for. If you do not go to games you are letting your team mates down.

  • Work before play...

  • Seeing he wants to go to the game, that is where he would be going. You do know that if he misses the game, it could cause the team to have to forfeit the game if there aren't enough players to play? That would be letting his teammates down. Sports are just as much work as Boy Scouts. Sports teach responsibility, respect, reliability, teamwork, respsonsibility and ethics. If he skips the game he lets down the whole team who have worked hard to practice and work as a TEAM, especially if they forfeit the game.. and that would be counted as a LOSS.

  • Also, in my opinion cub scouts is just as much play as baseball is....

    they are both extra curriculars....they are both privledges. and tyfry has a VERY good point about not having enough players.
