Best Answer

Yep, they have gone too far. There's an idea that parents should be able to see their kids at all times and it limits what parents and kids can do because its like they're handcuffed to each other. The kid has to go everywhere with the parent when the parent needs to go somewhere, and the parent has to go along with the child whenever the child wants to go somewhere to play. It wastes time for the both of them and doesn't allow the child to learn independence. The kid just ends up stuck on the computer or tablet because the parent needs them to stay put so that they can work and do chores. Its not fair for anyone.
