The ideals of Scouting, to be of value, must be practiced. Knowing this, the Scoutmaster asks himself, "How can I help Scouts to practice these ideals?" He listens to the repetition of the Oath and Law in Troop meetings and knows that this alone is no assurance that the Scouts are aware of, or will practice, the principles involved. A good Scout thinks and acts in accordance with ideals, and he practices them until they become a part of him, his second nature.

Why Boys Join Scouting

Has any boy ever told you he wished to join your Troop to have his character trained? Or, has he, like millions of others, joined for the fun he hopes to get out of it? Yes, he does think

Scouting is fun, but carrying out ideals - just learning to be a "good boy", as he would put it - is not the road to fun; nor does he think that fun and ideals can very well travel the same road.

Setting the Pattern

In this job of teaching Scouting ideals you will need the help of parents as well as Troop leaders. Scouts will follow the patterns you set. They will respect and imitate their leaders. All boys admire and respect the leaders who say, "Come on, let's go," and proceed to go as one of them, far more than the one who says, "I say go."

Satisfying the Scout's Desires

The Scoutmaster then comes to one conclusion - he must make the ideals of Scouting just as serious, just as human, just as interesting, just as much fun as possible, so that every Scout will apply them in his daily living. To accomplish this, use a variety of Scout ways. Use also what the educator calls laws of learning, one of which is, "To learn a thing you must practice that thing, and be glad when you succeed and sorry when you fail."
