Short Paragraph/Speech on “Respecting Elders” Complete Paragraph or Speech for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Respecting Elders

Good Morning respected principal, guest and dear friends. The topic of my speech is respecting elders. To gain respect from your children first you must respect your own elders in front of them. Not only that you have to respect each other too. We tend to show respect towards elders or any person, as a matter of fact is about honouring or holding esteem in an individual. It implies regarding an individual as a person of value and virtue. We all expect respect from others. But then do we actually respect others? For instance, because we are adults, we tend to take our parents for granted. We tend to get irritated by every suggestion they make simply because we think that we can never be wrong. We then admonish them or ignore them.We do not realize that our children copy or rather mimic us. They then treat us the same way. Apart from this even the way we address the servants, is the way our children will address them too. While your servant is hired by you and you have every right to give them orders the way you want, realize that they are still elders for your children. When you ill-treat or talk with disrespect to your servant, your child does the same thing. Another aspect we overlook is also the way we talk about people in front of our children. For instance, when we bad-mouth somebody in front of our children, they overhear our conversation, disrespect that person and put us into an embarrassing situation. So it is very vital that we watch our own actions and words in the presence of our children, otherwise it will spell trouble not only for us, but also for them, as there would be nothing beyond disrespect in the dictionary of upbringing.

Thank you
