What They're Saying
"The sections on rank advancement with their step by step "coaching" are truly remarkable and should help any parent who is new to scouting (or a veteran scouter for that matter) keep all the paperwork and advancement information for their scout in order and organized. The tips scattered throughout the Guide are very helpful ... -- virtually all questions are answered." Richard K., verified buyer
"Scouting for a new parent can seem like both it's own language and a quite convoluted one at that. ... I appreciate someone taking the time to take the mystery out of advancement." Kathryn G., verified buyer
"As a long-time leader in a Cub Scout pack, with boys of my own who have crossed over to a troop, I just wish this product had been around years ago. I plan to encourage all my Webelos parents to purchase this product as an invaluable tool for their transition to new Scouts BSA parent, and years of Scouting ahead of them!"
Carrie, Committee Chair, past Cubmaster, Scouts BSA mom
