Social media is a more wholesome place this week after a video meme from China depicting four generations of family members under one roof has gone viral.
What is it: The "four generations challenge" begins with a child walking into a room and calling back to their parent, who in turn walks into the same room and calls back to their parent and so forth until four generations of family members have entered the room.
