Should filial piety be regulated?

New standards for filial piety released by the Chinese government on Tuesday specifying 24 requirements of dutiful children triggered a heated online discussion. The new standards include spending holidays with parents, teaching them to surf the Internet, visiting them regularly, calling them once a week, cooking for them, buying insurance for them and encouraging single parents to remarry.

 


Yes. It's a good move. If left unregulated, the incidence of ungrateful children neglecting their parents will rise drastically.

No. Filial piety comes from the heart, not regulation. The intention is good, but the question is how to implement it?
