I think such an attitude to treat the elders as old fashioned is extremely wrong because, no one has the right to judge others. The elders have seen and experienced a lot in their lives, and we have to try to learn good things from their life and what they try to impart to us. Knowledge can come from anywhere. Nothing should be dismissed as old-fashioned or old -style because the age of technology has been reached by travelling through different phases and today's new fashion will become old fashioned tomorrow. We have to learn the values of respecting the elders and have to inculcate that in our lives.
Secondly, I will try to make my friends understand the importance of having the elders in our family and how much we should value that. They have become old by working hard in their prime for us and the family and what they need in their old age is not hatred. Due respect and love has to be given for their hardwork. I think properly conveyed my friends will understand the message and act accordingly. If required , I will take the help of other friends or teachers to make them understand this through a real life experience like a lesson being taught to the whole class or a discussion done informally among the friends, without blaming or naming anyone. The aim is just to create awareness among everyone to treat elders with respect. I will do everything in my ability to certainly make them understand that those who do not value their elders do not deserve to be respected either.
