behaving safely and appropriately without having to be told.”
I remember a couple of years ago when this recognition was introduced. There was a lot of buzz about an award for video gaming. Hopefully your Cub Scout will learn to use video games responsibly by earning the Video Games pin from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.
