Another theory is that they were actually, in a warped way, trying to protect him. In the first book Vernon states that they tried to "squish the magic out of him" through how they treated him (I think it's in the chapter where Harry meets Hagrid and learns he's a wizard). Maybe they (or Petunia at least) thought Harry would be safer if they could somehow subdue his magic and keep him out of the magical world.
