Respect
Respect is showing regard for the worth of someone or something.

The December Pack Meeting Tips from BSA remind us “Through interacting with pack families, Cub Scouts will develop appreciation and respect for different families and traditions. Through pack service projects, they will
learn to treat the environment with care.”
