Visit Your Parents or Go to Jail

A while back, we told you of that officials were mulling about a proposed amendment to China's elderly rights law that would require children to visit their parents more often. Well, that proposition is now law:

Grown children in China must visit their parents or potentially face fines or jail, a new law that came into effect on Monday says.

China's new "Elderly Rights Law" deals with the growing problem of lonely elderly people by ordering adult children to visit their ageing parents.

The law says adults should care about their parents "spiritual needs" and "never neglect or snub elderly people".
