The Standing Committee of that legislative body is in sessions until Saturday and expects banning parents from placing excessive workload on their children.

This draft law calls on parents to organize minors’ time for study, rest, recreation and physical exercise, but also calls on them to play a better role in preventing their children from being addicted to the internet.

The discussion comes amid a series of reforms introduced in the education sector in China, with the aim of alleviating academic burden on students on their way to university, as about 17.5 percent of children and adolescents suffer from mental disorders and many do not have a treatment.

Apart from that issue, the lawmakers will also analyze a law designed to monitor, detect and punish more rigorously fraud in telecommunications and the Internet.
