    It's Part Of Basic Manners

    At least I think that it should be part of your basic manners, respecting your elders is without a doubt something that everyone should practice. Without them we wouldn't be where we are today, they've sacrificed so much for us and they do deserve their respect. It's from our...

    Americans Should Respect Their Elders More

    I agree.  However, I am disheartened that more Americans do not respect their elders.  We should all be looking forward to getting older, because with age, we all know comes wisdom.  I look up to some other cultures for the way they treat their elderly. ...

    I respect most of my elders. It is just the dirty old men (the ones that like to pinch or grab a handful of boob) that I don't respect.

    For the most part, yes.  However, I no longer assume that people older than me are worthy of respect simply due to their age.  I have a coworker who is 70 if she's a day.  She NEEDS to hurry up and DIE already or retire.  She's cranky, has the thickest...

    Older People Deserve Respect

    I believe my elders deserve respect as they to me have built the foundations of the country in the sense that they have lived longer than me and have earned the right to be treated decently and very well. I have a lot of respect for them as i always get on so well with older...

    Very Much

    They've been there, done that. I haven't. End of story, right? But really, I am shocked when I hear someone my age being rude to a parent, or a friend's parent. It just seems horrible to disrespect someone who is older than me, or my friends.

    It Depends On The Elder

    I don't believe in respecting someone mainly because they're my elder. I know some elders who are just nasty and rude. But I do know some elders who are friendly, nice and pleasant. I only respect the latter. Respect is earned.

    Respect is always easy to give. You treat others as they want to be treated and we all get along fine. Then again disrespect is not rewarded with respect.
