FIXED: Family Life Merit Badge missing req 6b.7


The trooptrack list of requirements for the family life merit badge does not include requirement 6b.7.
Here is requirement 6 from the BSA website.

  1. Do the following:
    (a) Discuss with your merit badge counselor how to plan and carry out a
    family meeting.
    (b) After this discussion, plan and carry out a family meeting to include the
    following subjects:
    (1) Avoiding substance abuse, including tobacco, alcohol, and drugs,
    all of which negatively affect your health and well-being
    (2) Understanding the growing-up process and how the body changes,
    and making responsible decisions dealing with sex*
    (3) How your chores in requirement 3 contributed to your role in the family
    (4) Personal and family finances
    (5) A crisis situation within your family
    (6) The effect of technology on your family
    (7) Good etiquette and manners
    Discussion of each of these subjects will very likely carry over to more than
    one family meeting.

Thank you for correcting this!

Always a good idea to cite Official sources:

This has been updated. You will now see two merit badges, one called Family Life (pre-2019) and the other Family Life. The Family Life titled merit badge is the new updated merit badge. The Family Life (pre-2019) is the older version. If you have started this merit badge with new scouts and want the newer version, you will need to make sure you are adding the Family Life and not the Family Life (pre-2019) to the scout’s profile.

Let me know if you have any questions.
