Reddit person logouteventually wrote: “Many folks have famous the (seemingly) absolute madness of sending your little one to Hogwarts.
“One mistaken syllable, wand flick, or ingredient they usually would possibly explode. Indeed almost all the pieces they do might very simply kill them. Or so it appears.
“Why would wizards ship their youngsters to a deathtrap? And why aren’t there extra deaths? Granted there are some, however I’ll get to that.
“My idea is that Hogwarts, and possibly all wizarding faculties and probably another institutions, have ‘nerf’ charms that guarantee nobody can die or be significantly (i.e., irreparably) injured whereas on the grounds.”
The theorist continued: “This explains so many issues. I’ll simply do one.

“Did Voldemort know concerning the appeal? I feel so.”

“Why not simply have each Death Eater attempt to kill Harry at college? You know the place he sleeps. But the appeal is just too highly effective. At the very least he discovered after the primary ebook.
“But he most likely knew or had some thought earlier than that. He stored horcruxes at Hogwarts as a result of he knew it was secure they usually would not draw consideration by killing folks. He knew sufficient about “institutional” magic that he cursed the place of Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor. Where do you assume he bought that concept?
