Teen Support
I've been fortunate in my few years as scoutmaster to work with scouts that really seem to have it together. Some of them are more naturally leaders and others tend to follow along, but none have had serious personal problems that have surfaced. We've dealt with some issues, but nothing that a plan with parents and scout could not solve.

I expect some day a parent might ask me for help with some problem for which I'm neither trained nor prepared. For times like that, I think it's good to have an idea of alternate avenues of support for families. I've checked our local area for teen support groups and family health organizations so I can mention them to families.

Become aware of the support system in your community for teens. Maybe it's not specifically a part of the scouting program, but it's another resource for you to have at your disposal.
