Confucius taught that people should respect their elders an many parents are teaching that to their kids

Not very many people still practice it today. It's a dying religion and the cultural revolution in China didn't help it much. More people use it as a philosophy than a religion.

Answer 1As published worldwide, number of Confucianism followers in the world as of 2009 is more than 6 million people (around 0.1 % of world population. Refer to link below.Answer 2While only around 6 million people actually identify as Confucianist, that is a misleading statistic. Unlike the popular monotheistic religions (Christianity and Islam), the Eastern Religions are commonly practiced in tandem. A person may perform Buddhist rites and Confucian rites or they may be religiously Shinto but ethically Confucianist, etc. Most people who follow Shenism, also called Chinese Folk Religions, which constitute roughly 400 million people, also follow Confucianism as an ethical system of behavior to accompany the Shenist spiritual beliefs. However, since they are not "religiously" Confucianist, but "religiously" Shenist, they are often excluded from counts of Confucian adherents. If all people who actually follow Confucianism in any form are counted, it would be roughly 700 million people.

Well, Neo-Confucianism Differed from Confucianism in many ways. Confucianism was the belief of a real world, not an illusion, as well as Confucianism. Confucius wrote his ideas down in The Analects."Do unto others as you would have others do unto you" Confucius once said. Neo-Confucianism divides the world into a material world and a spiritual world. Confucianism does not believe in a spiritual world.Confucianism follows the Five Constant Relationships: Parent and Child, Husband and Wife, Older Sibling and Younger Sibling, Older Friend and Younger Friend, and Ruler and Subject. The goal of individuals in Neo-Confucianism is to go beyond the materal world, and to reach union with the Supreme Ultimate. Humans do this through careful examination of the moral principles.

No country has Confucianism as an official religion today, but many Chinese, Vietnamese, and Koreans would consider themselves Confucianists in addition to the other religions that they may practice.
