Luanda — The director of the National Children's Institute (INAC), Ruth Madalena Mixinge, last Monday in Luanda made an appeal to parents and guardians to instruct minors under their responsibility to respect elderly people.
Speaking to ANGOP, in the ambit of the National Elderly People's Day, to be marked on November 30, the INAC director stressed that parents and guardians have the responsibility to educate children about the value of elderly people in the family and the society in general.
"I defend that families should organise meetings in which the elderly can share their experiences and tell stories. This is necessary for the transmission of a legacy", she considered.
According to the source, one of the main concerns relating to the treatment of elderly people is the lack of respect and consideration they often get from relatives.
