jquery errorPlacement

I want to be able to append the error message to the label for each input.  I also would like to be able to do that to every label and input in my form.  I tried this code but it does not work.  It appends all the error messages to one label.  New to all this ugh!
Thanks

<script>
  $(document).ready(function(){
								 
    $("#commentForm").validate( {

	  errorPlacement: function (error, element) {
             
			 $('#name_label').append(error); 
			 $('#email_label').append(error);
         }           
	     });
  
  });
  </script>

<label for="name" id="name_label">Name</label>
     <em>*</em><input id="name" name="name" size="25" class="required"  />
   
     <label for="email" id="email_label">E-Mail</label>
     <em>*</em><input id="email" name="email" size="25"  class="email required" />

Sudhindra A NCommented:
what does the argument "element" contains in your function "errorPlacement"?
is it actual id of the element, or the element (DOM object) itself?

Sudhindra A NCommented:
if it contains id of the label field
then replace  $('#name_label').append(error); with $('#'+element).append(error);
