Discipline Guidelines


"Two tools are positive reinforcement and constructive discipline. We can inspire, encourage, inform, exhort and support our Scouts. It’s the right tool for the job, and it works every time for any boy who wants to be a Scout."

"Discipline is not gained by punishing a child for a bad habit, but by substituting a better occupation, that will absorb his attention, and gradually lead him to forget and abandon the old one." –  Baden-Powell

"If a boy is given sufficient positive reinforcement for appropriate behavior, positive behavior will usually continue."  – Scoutmaster’s Handbook
