How do we teach our children to respect their elders? Our children are the most vulnerable of society and yet somehow they become the most disrespected of the generations. If we want our children to respect us, aren’t we responsible for teaching them what respect is? Don’t we have to model it to be able to achieve that? Or is really right that we punish them whilst they learn and find enjoyment in watching and sharing their struggles and frustrations. We have to start and stop and think. If our actions would seem horrendous and wrong should they happen to any other generation, then should we really be responding this way to our children who are the most malleable and innocent of today’s society!
