I was yelled at, condescended to, disrespected and abused—and none of that came from the girls or their parents. My daughter with me as a leader stayed in Scouts through Brownies, Juniors and one year of Cadets. I know it is supposed to teach being strong independent young ladies but I can teach my girls that in a much better productive way. This is the first year for online cookie sales nationwide. Get with the real world, suck it up and get a K and suffer with the rest of us peon scum! It looks like GS has succumbed to the fate of many organizations that start out with good intentions and excellent goals: That is perfectly reasonable.
I spent a lot of time in the trenches with GS and my girls and my son who had to tag along!

We never went to camp, we never did great cookie sales, I had troop leaders move away and that killed the troop… had that happen twice! Use the web site charity navigator. Angel Martine, debated whether that's her pseudonym as wellfilmmaker John Christopher opted for minimal content, amounting to almost an all-sex opus. I hope this fact gets a lot of publicity. Best of luck to you and your daughter. Instead, when a GS wants to sell me cookies, I happily donate money directly to her troop. I was in scouts through HS, and spent most of my summers first as a camper, then a junior counselor, and finally a counselor.
