I can hear Dumbledore’s excuses already. He would probably say that Harry was only safe under the roof of a blood relative... that the Dursley’s were the only ones left.
The thing is, though, he wasn’t safe. Not by any stretch of the imagination. He was neglected and abused until he left that hiuse, and for the first 11 years of his life, he felt completely strange and unwanted. That’s damage to anyone, and Dumbledore is lucky Harry turned out as selfless as he did, or all of his plans to defeat Voldermort would have been dashed.
Anyway, Sure, Voldermort couldn’t hurt him under their roof, but Harry went wondering off on his own so many times because he hated that house, and Voldermort could have easily snatched him off the street at some point. The onl6 thing putting Harry did was keeping order in the magical world — i5 literally has nothing to do with Harry’s own well-being.
