Your Parents Can Sue You for Not Visiting?!?

In an interesting effort to address the growing numbers of an aging population, China created a new law that requires children to visit their parents.

One can only guess the bitter lawsuits to follow when Dear Old Mom doesn’t get the attention she thinks she deserves:  “You don’t call often enough…..why don’t you bring the grandchildren around more often….you call THIS a birthday present?”

Legislating morality is a tough path, but it should spark an important reminder that aging parents require time, attention, and due respect.
