We are trying to make her understand how one should behave in different occasions. Because of such instructions changes are noticed. So what I feel is that we, the seniors must take efforts to make changes in the behaviour of the next generation.

These lessons always have and always will remain the most important lessons in life. Parents who teach their children these core values, in my view, are great parents.
A child might not know how to prepare a cup of tea or recognise one palm tree from another, but that in no way means that the parents have not done a good job, raising the child. I question the ethics of those who point a finger at the parents. Your moralistic views are based on your limited view of right and wrong. You criticise someone else's upbringing – is it the right thing to do?
A child does not necessarily have to know how to make tea, but the child should be honest and determined. Similarly, a child does not have to be able to differentiate between plants, but must definitely have career goals.
Don't get me wrong, but I think children have to be taught the real important stuff that can actually help shape their life. People eventually learn how to make tea and chop vegetables. These are not skills that will get you success.

But these days the children are not even caring for parents forget about grandparents. They feel that they know everything and whatever we teach is a trash. They feel that they are the masters. Some children don't even talk to a guest who visited his house after a long time. They feel talking to him is a waste of time and continue chatting with his friend on phone. This is how the system and habits are getting changed.
So seniors should take time and see that their wards will know the dood manners and attitude.
If elders are intelligent they can train and guide the children in a desired direction. Children will try to mimic what their elders are doing whether it is good or bad.
A family where intelligent and wise elders dwell is very fortunate in the sense that the children need not go to outside for learning various knowledgeable things.
Knowledge is power.
