there is a family in my hometown,three sons and a daughter treat their old , helpless father bad.they all don't want to raise their old father, and all shrink the responsibility to take care of their father, then the old man has no way to go but go to the old men's family and live with other old person~~

Hello,xiowen! Whatever the circumstance may be the sons or daughters should come forward to take care of their old parents.if not they are doing crime.in India there is provision that if the sons or daughters do not take care of their parents than they can be put behind the bars if given a written complaint to the police.so it is our obligation to take care of them at their old age.yhanx.

xiaowen, Here in North America, unfortunately when people get old, they are put or put themselves in what is called Old Folks homes.This has become a sociatal problem.. These people are often over medicated, bored, with no laughter and no visites form family. For people here it is burden to have your parent live with you. That is how most people see it. In general , most here are : overworked, stressed, always living in the future to figure how to make more money.. . Living in the heart is not a common everyday way of living . I try to, both my parents passed, in the end my mother lived with my sister and I am happy for that . So long as we keep focusing on sickness , people will continue to get more and more sick... In China do you still pay a doctor to keep you well.?? Flamenca

do you know the reason why the children are like that towards him? i am not in a good terms with my dad... and i dont know if i will take care of him if he gets older. for me it is more crime if we parents does not take care of our children. that is our responsibilities. and we parents should save some also for our future so that we dont have to bug our children to take care of us. if they want to take care of us then that is great.... maybe we did something good to deserve that. if they dont like to watch over us then i dont think that there is wrong about that.
