Feedback at 5:00: Visiting Your Parents

Posted: Updated:

A new law in China requires the adult children of parents over the age of 60 to visit them "frequently."

They must also make sure their parents' financial and spiritual needs are met.

The law was created after elderly neglect across the world's most populous country.

China has an estimated 185 million people older than 60, and many are dependent upon their children for financial support.

The new law allows parents to sue negligent children, but does not specify other penalties.

What do you think of this law?
