Chinese lawmakers are preparing to a draft law that will curb internet addiction among children and prohibit parents from placing excessive workload on their wards.
This was disclosed on Monday by Zang Tiewei, Spokesperson for the Legislative Affairs Commission of the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee.
Part of the draft law on family education promotion stipulates that parents should appropriately organise minors’ time for study, rest, recreation and other physical exercises.
It will also require parents to play their part in preventing their children from being addicted to the internet, Mr Zang said.
According to Zang, the draft law will be reviewed at the NPC Standing Committee session to be convened later this week.
