(iv) Visit the elderly in your neighbourhood or fellowship. (v) Give them preference; for instance, allow them to have the seat on a bus. (vi)  Ask after their welfare. (vii) Appreciate them for their favours. (viii) Run errands for them, give a helping hand. If you desire submission from your juniors, learn to respect your elders. Respect is reciprocal.
