A 73-year-old parent sued her daughter and her stepson of self-neglect in China. Due to this and several other cases, China had decided to make filial piety a law and have strongly encouraged people to visit and respect their parents. I don’t think filial piety should be a law in 2018 because I feel like human beings are capable of doing filial piety without a law.
