  1. Read the “Stop Sending the Nanny” and laughed because as a Den Leader, I had a mom ask me if it was okay for her to send the nanny to the cub scout meetings. I told her that she could, but that it was ‘unusual’ because the whole point was to bond with your son! We’re talking one hour a week in the evening. Sad.
