My son has been asking to join Scouts ever since last fall (not constantly, but his school sends home flyers a couple times a year, and that sparks his interest. Also, our neighbor's son is in Scouts).
I'm not comfortable with two things: all the packs in our are meet in churches, and the BSA's anti-gay leanings.
I've talked with my son about why I don't want to participate in BSA, but he just wants to go and have fun.
I've looked for alternatives, and there are no chapters of Spiral Scouts or other clubs (and I am not able to devote the time to try and get a chapter started).
Have any other mom's dealt with situations like this, where you personal beliefs are challenged by your child's wishes? I'm starting to feel like I'm just being stubborn at this point.
