I spend some of my free time today forcing my son to do his Boy Scout requirements. Why do kids always really love their activities until they have to do the homework? Human nature I guess. Anyway, I don't believe in half doing stuff. If he wants to be a Boy Scout, he will finish all the requirements, or he won't be a scout next year. The good thing is it forces him away from the computer and his Legos for a short time (He is really, really obsessed.) and it does teach him new skills.
