In its draft version of the Primary and Secondary Students Behavior Code, the educational authority in East China's Zhejiang province has included the requirement that students remember their parents' birthday and express their respects to them.
According to the draft code, the reason for adding the new item is because filial piety is a key part of traditional Chinese culture, but children need to be taught how to honor their parents, which begins with remembering their birthdays. It seems to be a response to media reports that half of the surveyed middle school students didn't remember their parents' birthdays. However, does requiring remembrance of their parents' birthdays help foster the spirit of traditional piety among children?

If children have to be told to 'respect your parents', clearly parents have failed the child.
no amount of laws repair a damaged relationship.

you can not force someone to respect a person who may have abused them, neglected them, bullied them or made their life a misery.Only a   s a d i s t   would force someone to revisit a bad relationship.

a broken relationship won't be repaired by laws, and could cause more conflict and disharmony.

It is a totalitarian approach to solving the demographic crisis. It unburdens the State of the nee ...

that's the only reason there has been a relaxation of the 'one-child' policy.
currently there are fewer people to care for the old and fewer consumers being born.

It is all about the money
