It seems ridiculous to make it a law that adult children visit parents regularly. Young people nowadays live and work far away from their parents. It is sometimes unrealistic for them to pay a regular visit to their parents because they enjoy less holiddays. Morevoer, it is moral thing and should not be made into law.
