We've been working on Harry's social skills for a while now and it's starting to pay off, in charm value if nothing else. Harry regularly says 'thank you,' more like "tank you" I suppose, when he's received something that he was pining for. However, in teaching Harry to say thank you, we've been saying it to him whenever he gives his mother or me something. The shortcoming is that Harry's good grace inevitably comes out mirroring our language and, thus, he receives items he wants with a kind "tank you, Havvy."
