Private to Hogwarts Staff, and Lupin

Our children are perverts, and we must stop them.

I beg your pardon, Severus?
prof_sprout: (I'm worried)

[personal profile] prof_sprout 2011-03-09 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know what you mean. My Hufflepuffs have always been perfectly well behaved.
minerva_mcgonagall: (Stern)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
That would depend on your definition of 'precocious'.
minerva_mcgonagall: (Keen)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
I appreciate your desire for discretion, Severus, but if you want candid responses I'm afraid you'll need to elucidate.
minerva_mcgonagall: (Taken aback)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 02:46 am (UTC)(link)
Aha. No, I have not encountered that type of behaviour amongst my Gryffindors. Thankfully.

How are you handling them?
minerva_mcgonagall: (Motherly)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
Expulsion was my first thought, but your method has merit. How often do you find your Slytherins in compromising situations?

[personal profile] filius_flitwick 2011-03-09 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
One occasionally sees things one would rather not see, but rarely, and nothing too traumatising.
minerva_mcgonagall: (Keen)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
What do you propose?
minerva_mcgonagall: (Taken aback)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
Not an altogether unappealing idea, but it wouldn't take long before we'd be out of a job.
apwb_dumbledore: (Being curious and amused)

[personal profile] apwb_dumbledore 2011-03-09 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
Amusing though Severus's suggested sterilisation is, it would certainly be worthwhile discussing other ideas.

Would the heads of house be willing to address their students with relevant facts and advice?
apwb_dumbledore: (Being curious and amused)

[personal profile] apwb_dumbledore 2011-03-09 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
I was thinking more of a group setting than the incidental private conversations that are occasionally necessary.
filius_flitwick: (Ravenclaw)

[personal profile] filius_flitwick 2011-03-09 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
I have spoken with students one-on-one from time to time when it's come up, but I think I would be uncomfortable doing so in an official capacity.
minerva_mcgonagall: (Stern)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
If necessary I could do so. But I would strongly prefer not to. I don't suppose we could have Poppy do it?

As if I don't have more than enough to do already.
apwb_dumbledore: (Sherbet lemons)

[personal profile] apwb_dumbledore 2011-03-09 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
We appreciate that, Poppy.

[personal profile] remus_lupin 2011-03-09 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
I wonder if a regular classroom environment might be preferable. Teaching each house separately is probably wise, though.
remus_lupin: (Luna Plena)

[personal profile] remus_lupin 2011-03-09 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
How amusing.
minerva_mcgonagall: (Keen)

[personal profile] minerva_mcgonagall 2011-03-09 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
What age range would be taking this course? Six and seventh years?
apwb_dumbledore: (Being concerned)

[personal profile] apwb_dumbledore 2011-03-09 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
Another good question. Ideas?
remus_lupin: (Default)

[personal profile] remus_lupin 2011-03-09 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
I might suggest expanding the range some. Earlier is better, I'd think. Third years and up?
prof_sprout: (teaching!)

[personal profile] prof_sprout 2011-03-09 04:01 am (UTC)(link)
I think third year is far too young. At least fourth year and above.
apwb_dumbledore: (Seeing through to the truth)

[personal profile] apwb_dumbledore 2011-03-09 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
A more normal class setting might make the experience less uncomfortable than a lecture. I can see the benefit there, Remus, but the problem becomes finding someone to teach a new class.
remus_lupin: (04)

[personal profile] remus_lupin 2011-03-09 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sure you can find someone qualified. Maybe Dolores Umbridge is available.
prof_sprout: (something wicked this way comes)

[personal profile] prof_sprout 2011-03-09 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
Oh my goodness, no! She would have them write 'Abstinence' with that awful pen of hers, and that just wouldn't do at all.
remus_lupin: (05)

[personal profile] remus_lupin 2011-03-09 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
I'd be interested to see how Lockhart would handle the matter.
prof_sprout: (I'm worried)

[personal profile] prof_sprout 2011-03-09 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
I will certainly speak to my Hufflepuffs, Albus. I just hope I can be delicate enough to mention it without disturbing them.
apwb_dumbledore: (Being curious and amused)

[personal profile] apwb_dumbledore 2011-03-09 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sure you would be perfectly tactful if you take on the task.
