11 More Reasons I Might Have to Sue My Kids a la China’s New “Visit Your Parents Law”

China just passed a brillant law that requires children to visit their elderly parents. In fact, courts have already ruled on the first law suit requiring a woman from Jiangsu city of Wuxi to visit her 77 year-old mother twice a month AND provide financial support. I think this is pretty awesome, kids.

When I come home from work every afternoon, my 4 and 8-month-old daughters squeal and flap around with excitement.  I tell them that they can’t lead my on like this because it’s going to be a big let down when they become teenagers and barely say hello. Now maybe I’ll move us to China and sue them.
