We live in a world where parents are always expected to provide the best care to their children. But is that kindness and care reciprocated by children once they grow older? And in cases where children choose to not care for their parents once they turn into adults, should the be legally obliged to do so? This week, we debate whether a law should be enforced to ensure parents are taken care of by children after adulthood.
- Share your views on any of the statements being put up for debate.
- Children should be legally obliged to care for parents after adulthood.
- Elders are being abandoned by children who feel their parents haven’t done a ‘good job’.
