    Formal shirt

    I would like to get a shirt for the summer rather than for 'posh' but have been thoroughly put off by all the reports of the poor fit.

    Question? Rainbow song

    I don't either, it's nice to give girls a choice but it's much better when we are all seen as being in Guiding rather than individual clubs for girls with different uniforms, songs etc. One thing I'm hoping from the new programme is that we become properly united as Rainbows units and properly...

    Question? Rainbow song

    We are talking about the Rainbow song which was intended to be sung at the beginning and end of Rainbow meetings. song don't sing it of course, but it's the one on the website and in the books.

    Question? Rainbow song

    We are carrying on with the song, the girls wanted to and the words are valid even if the programme isn't themed that way now.

    Common Q&A about the new programme

    I have problems with numbers so nothing helps. :D

    Welcoming Volunteers

    Absolutely this! There's nothing like volunteering just to help and being met with a very over enthusiastic list of everything you can do, all the training you can go on, all the things you can help with then being told you can take over and run the unit.

    Do it as well?

    Don't do as I do, do as I say?

    The whole meeting isn't supposed to be spent doing the new programme though, there is room left for doing what we've always done. You can have meetings where you don't do the new programme but things as you always have, special crafts, outings, visitors etc so there we will always need to be...

    Don't do as I do, do as I say?

    To be honest can see that at all, I do think though that many people are jumping in to criticise it before they've even read through it all, done the e learning or even read it up that others are taking what they say as being how it is. This means there's a doom and gloom attitude spreading...

    Don't do as I do, do as I say?

    How do you find that minority unless you have a common standard? We used to have a common standard in Guiding, it's only relatively recently that leaders have been able to do their own 'thing' as it were.

    Don't do as I do, do as I say?

    There certainly is! so much so that I'm not going on that site for a bit, everything is wrong, the new programme won't work, people are stressing badly, it's not suitable for Rainbows, it's rubbish, it's too much work, giving up Guiding etc etc. It made me quite despondent from reading it, I've...

    Sharing a double airbed

    I think I'd rather see someone's head than their feet though! :D

    Fake threads?

    It's the advertising bots, I wouldn't mind but they are mostly about 'products' for men, I'd be very dubious about buying things from an unknown sites which post on random forums! :D:D

    Weekly Discussion: Squabbles, sulks and strops

    We do that usually and it works, our Flossie makes sure however she's never ignored by anyone. I'm seriously thinking about recommending she goes to the weekly stage school, instead of Rainbows. If it sounds like I have no sympathy it's because I don't. I will not have her disrupting everything...

    Weekly Discussion: Squabbles, sulks and strops

    I have had a chat with dad, had him to a meeting, explained things to him, he tried to take over the meeting. I have said we'd like her to be able to continue in Guiding etc etc. He doesn't actually seem to be that bothered. I managed to have a word with mum on one of her rare visits up (...

    Weekly Discussion: Squabbles, sulks and strops

    The short time between tantrums she spends trying to be in the front of everything, interrupting conversations, pushing her way between girls to be the one doing the activity first, shouting and generally being disruptive. she won't wait her turn for anything, has to have the...

    Weekly Discussion: Squabbles, sulks and strops

    That's the sort of thing I've always had over the years in various groups, Guiding, Scouting, Pony Club, playgroups, martial arts etc, they all run fairly much the same which is why I know the Flossie I have is very different and in need of more help than we can give her in an hour a week.

    Weekly Discussion: Squabbles, sulks and strops

    I have a Rainbow who is a serious problem, her tantrums are epic, frequent and totally focussed on her getting her own way. She is seven in November and it's got to the point where I am seriously having to consider asking her father to take her out of the unit as it is disruptive and wearing on...

    New programme for rainbows

    Is anyone not going to use the new programme? I ask this after reading comments on FB that it was too expensive to put into place and that the poster was stockpiling Roundabout badges so they could continue doing the old programme for a few more years. On another topic a couple of posters were...

    Information: Church Parade - church services

    I have to agree, badges which are given out for everything especially as a reward for turning up etc eventually just mean nothing. So often I'm seeing queries for badges to give to girls who do something they would have done anyway. I am really expecting a 'I went to the toilet' badge to turn up...
