    I'm a ... guider part 60

    I'm a Guider who is sick of being told what i'm planning is wrong. If someone else wants to organise it, they can go ahead and make the plans, but if they don't want to, then we'll do it the way I plan!

    Weekly Discussion: Does Go deserve a bad reputation?

    I imagine the second - the same reason that Scouting can't make major changes to Compass!

    Weekly Discussion: Does Go deserve a bad reputation?

    Well, yes, that too! (Unless Girlguiding want the data on how long it takes to do certain badges?

    Weekly Discussion: Does Go deserve a bad reputation?

    WHY SO MANY CLICKS TO SAY A GIRL HAS COMPLETED AN INTEREST BADGE?!?!?! Why can't there just be an option for 'Completed' when you're putting it on in the first place, rather than a 'Started' date and then having to click back into it!

    Brownie introduction activities

    We don't do 'Getting to know you' activities any more, we find that just getting them sitting down and doing an activity/craft will get them talking naturally, without it being forced conversation! We also find that most girls know at least one person from school or Rainbows or swimming etc...

    Interest badges

    Just whichever they're interested in, and whenever. They don't have to do them at the same time as the related Skills Builders UMAs. The general idea is that you don't just focus on one theme per term anyway, so it wouldn't matter when they do the Interst Badges

    Compare and contrast...

    But Join Us gives that information. It would be helpful if you could do a 'Area check' before putting details into Join Us where people could look at that info, but otherwise, Join Us already provides that functionality

    What does your Guiding bag look like?

    Is 'a total and utter mess' a good enough answer? It needs a real sort out, but in it I have: - Folder inc Register etc - Cash Tin - Badge Book - Some Skills Builders - About 1000000 pens (Some of which work, some don't I expect) - A necker I keep meaning to put back in the necker box -...

    Nicknames for Guiders a safeguarding issue?

    I have Brownie parents who didn't even bring their daughters in on their first night - they don't know what the leaders look like, let alone their names (Obviously real names are on our starting forms, but whether they read and remember that is another thing!)

    Badge books (New programme)

    I've asked them to bring them. We'll sign off at meetings when things have been done, so girls will need to bring them to be able to have badges signed off!
