I heard about benefits in the UK and welfare in the U.S. I am afraid China could consider such a pro ...

passing laws... and making programs are not going to be of much help if there are no parents around to take care of these things.... why are these families having such large families when they most likely cant even take care of one child...  I feel for the children they were truly innocent in this matter... one has to wonder why the father wasn't sending money home to take care of his family... in these deaths the father and mother should bear responsibility.... and pay for their lack of caring for their family... the USA isn't much better in these issues either... maybe in the end it should start with a more thought out process to have children in the first place..... I hope there is an answer that China can pioneer for the rest of the world to learn and benefit from..

You're right, laws won't change the fact that there are bad parents. It's the same all over the world.
In the US these types of neglected kids often turn to dealing drugs and prostitution just to survive.
We have about 2 million in prisons and jails to prove this. Prison rates in the US are the highest in the world.

Children all over the world are abandoned and left to lead a life of crime and become street people.
China has another opportunity to lead the way in taking care of children neglected by bad parents.
In a nation of 1.3 billion these cases are bound to surface time and time again.
In the coming years the world will be watching to see how China deals with abandon children.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The core question is, what is the level of civilization that your human society has achieved? If the human intellect is low or similar to those of (helpless) animals, there will only be fear if you see other humans or animals suffering/or dying. The 'intellectual' human is therefore capable of designing means to minimize/or prevent human sufferings or premature deaths through his brainy capacity, because he knows Mother Nature is purely unbiased when it comes to giving life/or death to kings or paupers. Therefore, for humans to collectively survive, they MUST co-operate and work with one another for a meaningful and worthwhile existence on this, their only home and planet Earth.

'Money' is the current currency for 'doing' a lot of things in this current world, and China has enough to help its poorest citizens, I think. I would suggest that local authorities set up government orphanages for abandoned children, and community homes for the neglected elderly, the disabled, and the down-and-out in society, helping those capable to find jobs in the long term. The public, and especially the very rich, can be encouraged to make monetary contributions and volunteers from schools, colleges, and the general public, can help with part-time assistance in such institutions. If there is a will, there is a way; if there is a heart, there is a human society.

The best countries to raise a kid are:

1. Norway
2. Iceland
3. Sweden
4. New Zealand
5. Finland
6. Denmark

Again the Nordic Countries model is the best. Stop wasting money on nuclear weapons, aircraft carriers, space programs and other unproductive things. Governments are for the people and what could be more important than taking care of children and supporting families.

Shame on these parents and shame on Chinese government.
