As the country is stepping into an aging society, Li Haibin, a CPPCC member, proposes that China's only children should be allowed to enjoy  paid annual leave to care for their elderly parent. According to his proposal, for those whose parents are over 75, they might get up to 8-10 days paid leave. So should only children be entitled to paid leave?

Why is only child so special? Whether paid or not, every child has the responsiblity to take care of his parents. Even if it takes effect, how could anyone guarantee the paid leave is not abused? Well intentioned but hard to implement.

This problem will last for about two to three decades. Then, it will disappear altogether due to the gradual reduction of the aged parents.
However, the present problem is and must be solved. One solution is to develop rural China. With cottage industries, the work force could remain where they are and could be close to their parents. This will allow them to take care of their parents.

Today, the cashless society of China is achieved but the pillars of virtue are dismantled.
Filial Piety has walked out of Chinese dictionary and vocabulary. It died on its natural course due to march of time!
