Dealing with an elderly parent or grandparent and struggling with the reversal of roles?
It can certainly be challenging, calling for compassion, letting go of old grudges, accepting limitations, cultivating patience …
One country seems to have this one nicely nailed down. Check it out:
"China recently passed a law allowing elderly parents to sue their children for not visiting them enough.(!)
In 2010, China became the first country to pass national legislation legally obligating adult children to visit their elderly parents.
There are no set parameters for how often children must visit, but parents in China who do not feel sufficiently cared for have legal grounds to sue their adult children…"
Hmmm... Needing to legally force children to visit their parents... Is this telling us something, or what?
What do ya say? Love to hear your thoughts on this one!
