It would be easiest if one were already familiar enough with the language to start pointing things out in this language.  Most toddlers afaik are most familiar with pointed out nouns and actions. Simple stuff like that. If you want more specific help, I'm here. :)

Post signs on objects in Na'vi.
Teach them to make simple requests in Na'vi.
Reward them when they use Na'vi creatively!
Help them choose a Na'vi name, or navify their existing name.
Create a mood by decorating their room in Na'vi/Avatar themes.

Yawey ngahu!

See, I'd been thinking of this. Most linguists agree that language helps shape thought and behaviour. How would teaching a baby Na'vi help to shape his/her development or understanding of the world around them?  :-\
I wonder  ???
Pure white would be disturbing. :)

This is a really interesting concept. I feel like the child would bring in a lot of loan words though for things commonly found here on earth, like dogs and cats. Because palukantsìp is a really long for for a kid. They also might bring in some interesting grammar features. It would be a fun experiment, but be sure to document every step of the way thoroughly for the benefit of the linguistic and scientific community :)

Something tells me that OP never did this, even last year when this thread started.  But yeah, if someone were to actually attempt this in seriousness, I would love to see the log and progress. :D

Yeah, but hey, I hold hope lol. I would love to see that log. I watched a video of a man who tried to teach Klingon to his son as a native language but stopped because of the stigma attached to it or something, which I thought was complete bull. Anyway, I think it would be cool! ;D

I thought about this too and wondered the same thing. Maybe if both parents spoke the language it would help the child's progression, who knows. But yes, very interesting.  :)
