Dear MEL School’s Topic Readers,
New filial law sparks debate.
It may be hardly believable for a grandparent to sue his or her children for not visiting often or caring enough in a country where filial duty has (or now had) long been a family practice.
As now economic development, one-child policy, migrate workers and hyper-competition in education and job market seem to have affecting the tradition in China, which is becoming one of the fastest aging societies in the world, those lonely or left-out grandparents are in need of more visits and care by their offspring and the court ruled that they should be taken care by law.
Enjoy reading and learning about the latest move to support and even enforce the traditional family value.
