My Son Proves that Error Correction does not Work

My son has been getting the word "daddy" confused with "doggy". I tried to correct him but it did not work. To listen, click here.

I think you just have to try to teach him the word "dog" first. It would be better. And then, as soon as he is ready change "dog" into "doggy". Make sure he's got the clear meanings.

Thnaks for the comment.
To be honest, I don't think it really matters what I teach my son. I think that children acquire language at their own pace and on their own terms. All they need is input and they will figure everything out themselves. That is the miracle of child language learning.
