Webelos Parent Meeting
Scouts are flexible, fun-loving, and ready to try new things - parents can be a different story. After 2 years of being comfortable with Wolf and Bear den meetings where their son made crafts, did most everything as a group, and followed the leader, there may be some struggles with adapting to the new Webelos program.
It is important to prepare parents, get them involved appropriately, and make sure they are aware of the goals of the next two years. This sample agenda can be used as the basis for a Parent's Meeting at the beginning of your adventure. You might as well organize this meeting like a typical den meeting.
