Respecting your elders-how important would you say it is in modern society and do you teach your children to respect adults?

I think it's very important! Sadly, it seems many have lost that value, though. I will absolutely expect my kids to treat adults with respect. (Now, with that said, if the adult is not respecting them then I will not be too hard on my kids for being rude back. For example, if my son wants long hair and DH's aunts comment (which I know they would) then I will not punish my kid for telling her it's none of her business in so many words. Or if an adult is belittling them or whatever, I do not expect my kids to stand there and take it just because the person is older than they are.)

Personally, I think respecting your elders is very important. As a society I think it's become less important. I try to and will continue to teach Leo to respect his elders.

I try to teach by example. And I try to make sure Austin always says please & thank you but I don't make him say yes, ma'am/no, ma'am or yes, sir/no, sir.

Yes, I think its very important for my kids to respect their elders. But I expect them to respect my kids as well for them to be respected back.

I think respecting other in general is important for everyone. I don't think it is any more important for a child because he is young and then he looses it when he gets older. We are all made in the image of God so isn't that enough reason to be respectful to one another?
