Modernization had changed the people’s behavior. It didn’t likely happen the old practices in treating old people. The old ways of letting the old people have a seat on the buses are diminishing nowadays. Most youngsters are becoming evil and tend to insensitive despite seeing the elders standing up in the bus. “What’s going on in this world?” I think that parents should take the responsibility of teaching the new generation.
“Do you offer your seat?” We can’t generalize the fact that young ones are being insensitive to the needs of the elders. Some of these youngsters can still have the sense of care to the elders. They can offer the seat to let the old man or woman feels comfortable while riding the bus. It is a good feeling to let them understand how good the parents of raising a sensitive child.
The fast pace of the modern world had changed the child’s behavior. But then, parents should still continue to make their children sensitive in taking good care of the elders. It wasn’t because of showing off but considering the act as an obligation. Asian countries continued to preserve the culture, it is still a challenge to fight back the modernization changes of child’s behavior.
In Tajikistan, it is considered a social norm that the elders treated well inside the bus. The elders will take his or her seat and the young adult or children need to offer their seats. It has been strongly imposed by the local government. If the younger people don’t do this, it will become a shame to the family.
The young generations should be molded as a good citizen in their own motherland. Some people think that it is unreasonable. But it reflects the real identity in the eyes of people. The good manners or gestures are still essential to be a better person. It can also be indescribable feeling to help others especially the old age group.
