Does the Law Have the Power to Bring Families Closer?


A Chinese law requiring family members to visit their aging parents went into effect July 1, but was met with mixed reactions from youth.

The law stipulates that family members who live separately from their elderly parents should visit the elders on a regular basis, or risk being sued.

In addition, the law requires family members to care for aging parents emotionally, and should not ignore or snub them, according to China.org.

So Chinese law no allows parents to sue their own children if they do not visit them enough?  What a screwed up society!
