? Children today do not respect their elders. Respect is needed for a society to work well. In past generations children were taught by their parents to respect their elders, the law, others and themselves. In my opinion, some children today are raised to only think of themselves and do not respect their elders or their surroundings. My main point is lack of respect is a large issue in society. The reason why children today do not respect elders is because dotage of parents.
Indulgent parents are responsive but undemanding and permissive. They were used to give their children everything and anything their children want, no matter the things is needed or just their children want. As a parent, it is your duty to set a good example for your child and they should listen to what their elder’s say. Parents should never use disrespectful words for the grandparents in front of their children because children learn from what they see and if parents do not show respect to grandparents, children will do the same.
Next, I would like to point out that schools also play an important role in inculcating moral values to children. They make them learn these etiquettes through some stories and certain examples. Teachers also teach them how to greet elders and talk politely with them. For example, children should also learn how to respect to each other. Punishment is needed for those children who lack of manners. I believe that with cooperation between parents and schools, children will be more politely and have good manners.
When you are a child, who takes care of you? Now, the cost of living is so high that many people under age twenty-five are moving back in with their parents. Young people are getting married later now than they used to. The average age for a woman to get married is about twenty-four, and for a man twenty-six. Newly married couples often postpone having children while they are establishing careers. ...
Furthermore, children today can be pretty busy. They usually find themselves with a schedule full of responsibilities including school works, extracurricular activities and so on. Such a full schedule might affected the children do not attach importance in respect their elders. The influence of friend can be having negative effects on children. Children will learn what their friends do and do in the same way.
At the same time, if children’s friend show respect to elders, they will do that too. This shows that self-discipline in children is important for their future. In conclusion, by caring of parents, educating school children and self-disciplined in children, we can solve the problem of children today do not respect elders. If more people were respectful, the world would be more positive in lively. Lack of respect should not be appearing in our next generation.
