Can’t Hear or See as Well
Earlier I wrote an article “Correct a Little”. Part of that management advice I received went “See everything, overlook a lot, correct a little”. For years I was a Boy Scout leader, involved in both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts including four years as Troop Scoutmaster. For ten years in a row I went with the scouts to summer camp, yes it did teach me patience. At one of the Court of Honor scout meetings this was brought up. After the meeting I was talking to the parents and one mentioned how challenging it must be. My response was “It gets easier as I get older, because I can’t hear or see as well”! We laughed. Over the years the scouts taught me not only patience but how to really put into practice “Overlook a lot”. In the early years I was a little more of a disciplinarian than need be. Over time I took the attitude if the scouts are safe and not hurting themselves or anyone else it is probably ok. It made for a more enjoyable time for the scouts and their leaders.
