The words we know, are the building blocks of understanding.

I watched this video, here. I listened to the language being used. Some can ‘fill in the meanings’ in relation to the words used, and infer what is being said. Some might call this 'literature' of the absurd. And, yes, it is a measure of what is happening in our society.
Now imagine that these icons, as the words used, have an inference to the character in the video, and that this language used  is real to the person using it.
Now imagine your generation or class, or nationality and the words as iconography used to convey meaning.
If two people came together and wrote out what inferences existed behind the words, would it turn out like a game of telephone where a phrase being whispered in our ears around a circle,  expressed at the end of the line was completely other than what was initially said?
Also, if we learn compounds as icons representing layers of value, which has a lot of inference, do we teach ourselves to see detail directly here? Or do our children learn to move as compounded imagery without any real understanding in common sense? And, does this teach discipline? It can’t teach discipline, which is why so many children have such a hard time actually being able to discipline themselves because they have no real understanding of detail. Too much ambiguous meaning has been given, without detailed explanation. And so many adults are unaware of their own conditioned inferences, expecting the children to immediately understand.
Also, within this, how can humans in their relationships communicate when inferences are not the same, and cannot possibly be the same?
If we look at the cultural decor in our towns and cities, on our media and in our films, we can see that we are being impulsed with compound imagery that reveals nothing about itself. Instead, we carry compound imagery, even as our language, that is smothered in emotional/feeling values that are very difficult to ‘see through’ and correct, especially for one teacher in a room of fifteen or more students, and even here, with fewer students.
Some may decide that mixed race classes are therefor detrimental. But this is just another layer of this problem. We live in a world where what happens to water on one part, eventually effects all the water on this earth, so humans need to be able to communicate and understand one another. And, humans need to understand the details of common sense living, and not be impulsed with words that become icons of values that are fuzzy in understanding reality.
Thus, we must rebuild our children, with the building blocks of words to have clear meaning in common sense of each word as a unit signifying an actual physical description because inference based on judgements about differences do not describe practical reality. I mean, we all know that  taking care of our world and our things, and respecting other humans, and even our pets involves practical actions. So, teaching words, with clear direct meanings, is how we build children that learn the detail that is what being a disciplined person means, one that can communicate and direct themselves.
And, how do we get through the memory of compounded words? How do we remove the definition of a ‘champion’ being ‘sponge bob?’  Can a child even explain what it is about ‘sponge bob’ that is champion like? No, would they, then they would not answer the definition of the word ‘champion’ with ‘spongebob!’
In all common sense, this is indicative of a complete disconnect from any form of processing skill. And this is happening to all our children, and it is what makes it very difficult for children to read. They are so overwhelmed with their memories that are not clear that the ability to process through and the lack of detailed orientation with practical reality is so unpracticed that to begin this development takes a consistent and exerted effort, one that many parents don’t realize because they too are busy, and one that A teacher cannot possibly clean up.
An example of how thick this has become is to drive into a city, and see all the signs plastered all over the buildings. the signs are of iconographic symbols that reveal no detail of life, this is in essence how busy and filled the minds of our children are. And we wonder why we must beg children to read, and push that reading is fun, when this should be a natural thing for children to do. If they can hold the clutter of imagery, why not have it be useful words that teach the ability to see in detail and thus allow the child to learn common sense and as this self direction, self awareness and self trust?
As, I said, listen to this video, and realize that we have a process to follow. And technology can help. We can refocus our children, at the natural learning ability - that which built the imagery of iconographic imagery - to place word structures in this memory/gps and then add definitions that are practical and have common sense, so that the child can read and understand detail- understand the art of understanding that living in this world and caring for oneself and others is a process of paying attention to the details of our practical physical environment. If word meanings are clear then that paragraph makes sense, and making sense if fun. All children desire this.

Many behavioral problems are due to a lack of ability to explain in detail what is going on within and without. And a cluttered mind of values has a hard time processing through these values and making sense of the words in front of them. Words are really much like numbers, they are the measure of movement in all detail of the world around us, so a paragraph is a description of the measure of the world. If our children know the words, they SEE the world. And then, they can be the best they can be. And this is what we all want for our children. 
We all want a child that grows into a responsible adult, because a child that lacks the ability to be self responsible is a child that parents will end up taking care of in a world where our pensions are uncertain with each passing day.
The words we know, are the building blocks of understanding. They are the units of measure that ensure a child becomes an adult that has a direct memory and as such an ability to solve problems and manage their world effectively.
