China's Changing Family: 3 Videos - Elderly and Complicated Family Names

-WOW. Complicated... 

An insight into the issue of China's rapidly ageing population.
Elderly people in China are traditionally venerated. But the speed of China's development is causing social and demographic change. More and more elderly people are choosing to live in retirement homes rather than putting pressure on their children.

Did you know that every member of a Chinese family is called something different? Depending on whether it's from your mom's side or your dad's side and their seniority? It gets quite confusing, so we will draw it out for you in a family tree and hope you can learn some Chinese along the way! :) Please don't mind our terrible handwriting!

Watch the behind the scenes on how we created the family tree:http://e.ntd.tv/WefUsf

Note: There are still many more ways to call the same person, for example husband's mother can be called 家姑,家婆,婆婆 or 奶奶. This all depends on where you are from. To keep it simple, we just chose the more generic terms.
