Best Answer

Hermione Granger wanted to protect her parents and so made them forget who they were. She made them think they wanted to move to Australia and that they didn't have a daughter because she knew the Death Eaters would torture them when she went missing. She later reversed the charm and brought them home.

Hermione placed a strong memory charm on her parents to make them believe they were Wendell and Monica Wilkins, a couple without any children who wanted to move to Australia. She did this so the death eaters would not harm them when Hermione didn't return to Hogwarts.

this is in case Hermione doesn't return. she doesn't want her parents to miss or worry about her so she makes it like they never had a daughter. Also to protect them from the death eaters!

Hermione used a spell to make them forget her. She did it for their own protection. She was afraid that the Death Eaters would come after them otherwise.
