Tyler has Scouts on Tuesdays. husband takes him and stays there with him. Sometimes husband helps with what they are doing and sometimes he has to work on things for his job. Tonight the boys worked on a floor puzzle of the US. Then the leader gave them some little (maybe 4 inches) boomerang shaped things to play with while the adults taped the puzzle together so they can finish it next week. Well, thank you is the ONLY boy from his class who is in Scouts. And it is his first year in Scouts. The other 3rd grade boys are in the other 2 classes at his school. The boys all gathered around thank you and started poking him all over with the foam flying things. While it didn't hurt, thank you couldn't get away from them the way they were gathered around them. husband got him out of that mess and told the leader that they were going home because it seemed to be "Pick on Tyler Night". thank you is now convinced that the other boys hate him and don't want him to be there. He has been having so much FUN with Scouts. And this behavior is TOTALLY against what Scouting stands for. I am INCENSED. I will be contacting the Den Leader who was more concerned with picking up a puzzle than with stopping the boys from bullying another Scout. I know the Pack leader from WAY back (he was friends with my adopted Grandfather, and I took classes from him in college). I plan to contact him also. And I will contact the school. They do not have much of an anti-bullying program, and other schools in our district do. These were all boys from thank you's grade at his elementary school. There needs to be some concentrated work on an anti-bullying program during school also. Poor guy, you shouldn't leave a Scout Meeting feeling like the other kids HATE you.
