Treating Others

"You get what you give" or in other words "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

However, if the younger one disrespects, the older one who has pride may even beat him up. On the other hand (good side), if the younger and older respect each other, they can give and get the respect they want, but this rarely happens (in Korean schools). Another example is in the book in To Kill A Mocking Bird, which is a book about a black man who is accused, with no evidence, of raping a white girl. The father of the girl was a poor white man, poorly educated, and with pride. He didn't want to lose to a black man, and the fact that it was black the judge was forced to execute the innocent black man, or else the judge could of got hurt.
