my troop update

January 16th, 2019 at 10:45 am

I managed to talk to my troop program manager a woman who works for girl scouts. She had to talk with her supervisor. She said that I am to tell the mother she can no longer drop off her child. She must stay. I must ask her to take the child if she can't stay or another friend or family member can stay with the girl.

As much as she needs this there are other liability issues and things that have to be also considered including the safety of the other children. I have to write an email and ask if she understands since she still hasn't responded since Friday.

All the parents I emailed haven't responded. However I have to follow up and see they understand. But in this case the mom can't just drop and run to therapy or any other business. It's not so simple. While she needs help and support unfortunately we can help to the best of our ability.

This has been a wild ride this year.

    Good luck with the troop issues. I have been a troop leader for my daughter's troop until they bridged to adults (2 got Gold - YAY) and have had some issues. I have also been one of our service unit managers for a few years. If not already suggested, I would have a paper ready for ALL parents to sign in regards to the drop off, etc. This would serve in place of the email that has not been answered by all. In our Service Unit, a troop leader would dicuss issues with us (SU managers first). We are volunteers as well. If unresolved, then our Council rep (paid GS) would step in to assist. Good luck.

    Well, that sounds like a sensible solution. I hope, for the sake of the daughter, that she will be able to stay or can work out a plan with relatives.

    It sounds like your program manager for the troop is a reasonable person who gets it. That's good. I hope that it works out that someone can stay with the girl so she can enjoy being with the troop, but the liability issue is a very real thing.
