Are You HIP? - SM Tip
By: Posted On: 2012-12-04

Submitted by Mark Woodworth

My last tip introduced the acronym CFD, which stands for Confusion, Frustration, and Danger, the only times adult leaders should interfere with the Scout-led troop program. That tip prompted subscriber Mark Woodworth to share an acronym he uses in San Diego’s Troop 271.

Mark likes to tell leaders and parents to be HIP, which stands for Hands In Pockets. As he explained in an email, “This keeps them from jumping in and folding the tent, making a phone call that the Scout should be making, etc.”

Your Scouts may not think you’re cool, but I hope they think you’re HIP!
