Respect to the older people is a crucial thing, it is more than just a culture, but it is one of the life older in society environment. In the fact, in many countries shown that low respect to older people is happening. This is become an important issue among the society, because respect to older people is part of value and norms. I personally think that this problem happened because of lack of education about value and norms to children, influence from media television, and lack of character monitoring.

School is the main place for the children to get knowledge about value and norms. Children spend most of their time in the school, so, most of them learn how to communicate and interaction from their school. At this opportunity, a school plays a major role to form and educate the value and norm about how the children should respect to older people.

Mass media such as television plays important role in influence the culture, habit and norm of young children. There are many of negative aspects from television programs today. The parent should decide which one of television programs are good for their children and which are not good. Because, children are can be influenced by television program, because of the capacity of their brain is in receiving time the knowledge although they still do not know is it good or not.

The last cause of this issue is a lack of character monitoring from parents to their children. Most of parents in metropolitan cities are not pay big attention about their children’s character. Parents give full authority for the school to form the character and teach about value and norms, and then parents do not concern to monitor it in daily life.

At the end, I can conclude that school should do a serious concern about value and norms of student, because I believe that the first duty of a school is to teach character, not skills, and educate values, not techniques. Parents should spend their time to monitor the character of their children in daily life.
