I Blame The Parents
So due to a lack of female leaders at the group I have been establishing a mum's rota to help with scouts. It's been easier than I expected with 7 mums volunteering following a quick email round. What's been most interesting though has been the individuals that have volunteered and the nature of their kids.
The parents that have volunteered are those who's kids are well mannered, that listen, that don't answer back, that clean up after themselves, that are enthusiastic, that smile, that work hard and most of all that say thank you.
And you have to ask yourself, is anyone really surprised by that?
