During the days of our forefathers

During the days of our forefathers, showing respect for elders was one of the rigid, unwritten laws. Putting their elders on a pedestal, the offspring's and sibling regarded their elders words as law that could never be broken. They believe that severe punishment would be fall anyone who dared go against his or her fathers will. In all their relations with their parents and elders, the children always avoided any act that might offend them. It was considered very disrespectful for them to utter their parents' names. When a child talked with his or her elders, he or she took off his or her putong (turban or headdress) and sat either on the ground or on his or her heelbones. He or she addressed his or her superior in the third person and never the second.

In turn, the parents continued to support and protect the child from harm as he or she grow older. Even when already married. He or she continued to live with the family, in the fathers house. The father continued to provide support, if necessary, even if the married couple and their children decided to live separately from them. The father believed that everything that was his was theirs.
