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.

Imagine, if your children are over-seas ... how can they comply? The law needs to take all cases into consideration.

Children must show filial piety by visiting parents often but I dont think it should be written in law.
