One father, Patrick Flaherty, has his worst night of sleep after he and his son join an unknown organization - The Boy Scouts of America. Despite that cold, damp night, Flaherty and his three sons today (all three achieved Eagle Scout) are activie supporters of scouting. Why Scouting? is an easy-read book for involved parents that seek to learn about an established outlet for their sons. A place where ethics and moral choices are taught through example; where citizenship is understood and expected from each scout. Flaherty cuts past the typical biased, main-stream reporting about scouting and explains through his telling of many outings how duty to self, God and country, Respect for others, honesty, and citizenship were taught to his sons through real life experiences. Why Scouting? is a must read for any parent that wants to channel their son through a positive organization.
