The head of the Girl Scouts says that while the organization is disappointed that the Boy Scouts have decided to accept girls it is focused on helping parents understand the benefits of Girl Scouts.

Sylvia Acevedo, the CEO of the Girl scouts of the USA said, "at Girl Scouts, we're going to stay completely focused on girls.  We were disappointed that an organization that we had partnered with for 100 years decided to accept girls.  Our focus is on what we do really well."

Her visit comes at a time of strained relations between the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, which last month announced a new name for its Boy Scouts program: Scouts BSA.  The Associated Press has the complete story.
