And I made a concentrated effort
not to be a "mommy" to my boys
while on Scout excursions. This is
critical to success, whether you are a
mother or a father. All boys should
equally be the unit leader's charge.
As I neared the end of my time
with the troop our Scoutmaster paid
me what I consider the ultimate com-
pliment. Introducing me to a new par-

our most active Scout fathers!" I was
simply one of the gang.
Where has my trail finally led?
Today I have my own business as a
guest teacher for schools, Scout
groups, camps, and sometimes adult
groups, giving lectures and demon-
strations on Indian lore.
My statement, "We are going to be
authentic or not do this at all," made
so long ago, has taken me far. Because
I have striven for authenticity, my
programs are much in demand.
In high school and college I was
often afraid even to answer a ques-

I warn every Scout parent to be-
ware of that first step onto the
Scouting trail. It can lead you, and the
youth in your charge, to many places
in many ways: physically, geographi-
cally, mentally, emotionally, and spiri-
Charlott Hoick lives in Landenberg,
Pa., near Philadelphia. She is cur-

3, chartered to the Avondale Presby-
terian Church. Her two Eagle Scout
sons, ages 25 and 27, are also still reg-
istered in Scouting.
