you think that not letting your children go places, be with there friends, or at least having a little bit of freedom will bring your kids closer to you and keep them safe. yeah it will keep them safe but really, it seperates you from your kids more. theyll start to do things behind your back because they know you would never approve. trust them more to make the right decisions! if not then your really just pushing us away.
(but if they break that trust then thats a different story..)
