Precedential Respect

Allowing parents to have priority in distributing foods and services. Parents first. Elders first. Elders come first. Table manners are of no exception here. In China, when eating with people who are older than you, it’s respectful to pass food to the elderly first. If a dish is particularly tasty, you’re expected to let the elders have more of it. Let old people eat first.

To care about someone is to prioritize them.
