Elders should be respected. Unless they are so old that they cannot change their own diapers. Then they should be put out of their misery because that is just plain cruel.



On that I say : please kill me before I need to wear a diaper......



put it in your will lol "to the person who killed me, you get ALL of it!" rofl

Ok before I go, I'll say something, not stupid, for a change...

Respect is not due, it has to be gained, so the elderly mostly had more time to gain it, but to lose it as well, the young ones got neither... middle aged are getting there.... to be exact, respect should not be something based on age, but on accomplishments, loyalty... and stuff...

Now my brain hurts.....

untill you're like 18, adults will treat you like you know nothing
you're stupid,can't think,can't decide on things like what you want to do in your future,you're just a doll that can be treated anyway you want
this is what i hate about being a kid

Age means nothing!! I respect and acknowledge people of all ages. To me honestly age is just a number. I say, never underestimate someone who is younger or older then you. Also just because someone is 12 or 15 or 18 whatever, doesn't mean they don't know nothing. Kids nowdays are hella smart and you would find alot of them to be even adult like at times in the terms of knowledge n' what not. Also I've met alot of older people who are 50+ who are wise and in the best shape of their lives and have kept an open mind to new things and don't act like old foggy's n' what not. Point being I keep an open mind and listen to new ideas and things from people old and young and would never reject someone or their ideas and beliefs because of their age. Hehe!! XD

Very true. Some young people think that the older generation is too old to be helpful and some older generation people think young people are too rude to be helpful.

Also, those who disrespect your elders; beware, because one day you'll become old. Then you'll see how rude it to be called "grandpa" or "gramps".

Honestly though, young people need to respect the older generation, they have knowledge that you can't find anywhere else probably.

I respect my elders, but most of my class mates are quite dis-respectful

I bet when those rude young people are old, it will be the other way around for them. Not that it should be, but I've noticed that more and more young people are rude to the elderly.

Here is an example: this kid, maybe in his teens, was walking down the same path this older person was walking. What had happened was this older person couldn't lift this bag of cat food and this brat said "go back to a nursing home gramps."

I could not belive any person would be rude for no reason what so ever. Though, I am glad I was able to help this person, at least he had help in the end.

I think most ppl are ageists against teh youth since we are kinda getting more troublesome or at least some of the ppl i hang out with seem to be getting troublesome and always causing commotion. but kids just seem to treat everyone equally except elderly, they are higher than us. i think adults are always seperating ranks by age and the youth is usually the lowest.
