Sure this is becoming a big problem and especially in our churches today. the parents have been the forefront of discouraging the pathfinders in so many ways. it may be that the are not getting the love and explanation as to why the church is such a good place to be. the y need to be told that pathfinder is such a good place to be and the benefits by even the parents themselves befoe the pathfinder teachers could tell them as well.
nest the pathfinder teachers or rather masterguides need to have a good knowledge of how to handle pathfinders who have been experiencing alot of challenges and esp with the parents
