Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
I have a couple of scouts who have managed to create an adult account attached to their scout accounts. I am afraid if someone sends a message selecting just the adult we would violate YPT. Both of these scouts are from the same family. One from our girl’s troop and another for the boys’ side.
Because when you go into each of those scouts, the scouts name appears below where the parents are listed. Then when you use the Send message function they appear in the adult column. Also when I click on scouts name in the parent list, is shows up as parent / guardian.
