The Ninth Method of Scouting

I had a discussion with my Wood Badge Troop Guide, and he put in the most concise, eloquent way I've ever read the idea that we (leaders and parents) are not grinding boys through a badge mill just as fast as we possibly can: "In the Church we are culturally married to the idea that successful Scouting means 'Eagle by age 14'. It takes time as well as effort to alter this perception."

I've thought of another term for it, the Ninth Method of Scouting: Git-r-dun.
