Complicated Family Trees

I've always wondered what will happen to Chinese families now that we only tend to have one or two kids. How will they ever learn all the complicated family terms such as the difference between Goo Ma and Goo Jie, Yee Ma and Yee Yee? I find it easy only coz my mom and dad both have big families so I pretty much have one of everything but even so, when my dad's older sister's son who is older than me just had a son it still took a few minutes before we figured out the proper Canto greeting. Which was why shortly after our discussion, one of my cousins in the US sent the family chain this video and which I'm promptly resharing with you coz it's awesome.
