How do I set my account up as parent and add my cubscout

Hello my son is a cubscout in troop 287 how do I look up his information and attach it to my account

Your son’s unit needs to invite you to connect. Generally, any unit admin (typically cubmaster, committee chair and chartered organization representative by default) can invite parents to connect.

There are instructions here for parents:

For the leaders to invite you to connect, there is a tutorial here:

Another option is to use the Scouting app. Click Scouts > add a new parent connection.

How does that work if there are no parents linked to the scout at all? Who vets the connection?

They have to know certain information that the BSA has deemed sufficient.

I guess that makes me feel somewhat better.
