China has passed a law requiring adult children to visit their elderly parents regularly or risk being sued.
[link to www.bbc.co.uk]


The law does not specify how frequently such visits should occur, but warns that neglect could risk court action.

Reports suggest a growing number of elderly Chinese have been abandoned or neglected by their offspring.

Chinese state media reported earlier this month that a woman in her nineties had been forced by her son to live in a pigsty for two years.

Newspapers are full of such stories, or of tales of children trying to seize their parents' assets, or of old people dying unnoticed in their homes.

The rapid pace of development in China has damaged the traditional extended family in China.

Depressing on how they lack freedom.

But a smart move on the Chinese end. They know the family structure must be maintained or else you face collapse.

Smart. But really crappy.

This is one good thing about China though they expect the kids or grand kids to care for the elderly dramatically reducing the states cost on elderly care.
Here we don't do this and there is billions of dollars of other peoples money spent on older people whose kids could easily care for them but are to lazy and selfish.

basicly parent inventing and enforceing slavelike lowerclass laws on their children that they themselves dont have to follow

lots of people were raised by the maid or the help that most likely wasnt very happy with their job

I think this is old news.

A law is just a law, especially if no one enforces it.
