Build meaning into your words for everyone

Say what you mean, mean what you say.

Build meaning in your words for everyone.

Corporate terminology.

Three letter abbreviations or TLAs.

Playground talk.

Cultural words.

Wherever we are.

There seems to be a written and unwritten code.

Sometimes it feels like my teenage children are talking a different language.

I have to guess as to what its meant to mean.

As I cant get a word in as they enjoy

Talking about what they have seen and heard.

On a screen or events at school.

At the relevant point

A pause.

I ask them to put more meaning to what they have said.

I’m usually told I’m old and wouldn’t understand.

But that doesn’t stick.

They then

Build meaning into the words they have just said.

Are you guilty of using terminology that some

May not fully understand

Or

Not interpret in the same way as you?
