      Visit your parents: It's the law

      How often do you visit your parents?{} If they complain "not often enough," you may be breaking the law in China.{} A new law introduced this week in China requires the adult children of parents older than 60 to visit their aging parents "frequently."{} They must also make sure their parents' financial and spiritual needs are met.{} The law was created after numerous reports of 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.
