Most parents agree that they made some mistakes raising their children. If they could only turn back the clock and try again. While all of our Scout Moms fall into this category, there is one thing they never question: encouraging their boys’ involvement in Scouting. Our Scout Moms all agree, becoming a Boy Scout influences their sons in a powerful way and opens a world of opportunities to them. In fact, a recent study by Tuft's University found that through Scouting’s focus on providing prosocial experiences, young people are able to build a foundation of positive character attributes that allow them to embrace opportunity, overcome obstacles, and be better prepared for life. You can learn more about the study from this Scouting Newsroom Blog Post.
