STFU, gramma!
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 12:54:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, not as much as in the past.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 1:54:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not so much, I've seen a lot of disrespect.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 2:52:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
I honestly don't think so...
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 3:45:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I see so many people talking back to their elders, that I can't even pretend and say yes. How saddening.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 4:56:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
not at all.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 8:00:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
In general, no.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 8:03:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, the other day I saw a video of girls giving their grandma a dildo for her birthday, and then almost orally raping her.

No-one should be given respect just by virtue of being old, it should be earned by virtue of their character.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 11:45:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think they do more so in Asian countries.

A lot of kids these days are rude to everyone: old, middle-aged, young. I wonder where their parents are when their little brat is skating around the mall almost crashing into people or making rude comments to passer-bys. Kids these days don't respect anybody.

No not really

I know I do but that is because I was raised to.

Parents these days are submissive and make children think that they are equals when they arent. Parents are ment to teach their children not be their friends, there is a point when you stop being a parent and start becoming the friend that they dont HAVE to listen to. If they dont respect their parents what makes you think they will respect any other adult?
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 3:41:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
No I don't think so

Not as much as in the past...

When the elder demands the respect or shows that he/she deserves it, yeah they do. But in this day and age I don't think respect is just given for no reason.

Not that I think shouldn't be, just that I think it isn't. Personally I give everyone respect until they do something that shows they don't deserve it anymore. But I think a lot of the youth wait to give it when they feel it's been earned.

All generalizations put aside, elders do not receive the kind of respect they merit. There are some extreme cases that we hear about on the news (the elderly being abused and killed by their children), but common incidents are hardly considered. For instance, teachers are tortured by ungrateful students. Even the most difficult of people deserve a measure of respect that today's youth are selfishly unwilling to pay, and when they reach an age that they expect respect I'll bet that they won't understand why they won't get it.

Ha ha ha No Although People have lost the gene to care about other people
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 7:10:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's actually depressing to see how little teenagers (and younger, maybe) have little to no respect for the older folks. It gets worse every year.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 8:06:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. That is why I hate being classified as a teenager, because it seems that I'm the only one in my classes who sits there quietly while everyone else swears and tackles eachother.

I hate kids for this reason. They don't make sense and they annoy the piss out of everyone all the while disrespecting everyone who should step in their way.
