I agree with Sarte. It's hard to not get emotionally involved. You will need to lay down the law, and let them know who is in charge.

Okay coming from a teen JUST get out of our lives! like let us go shopping we need to learn from our own mistakes not yours. I live with my mom and grandmother they are constantly telling me how to act on dates, that i should do this like this and blah blah blah it is ANNOYING so here is a hint, want your kid to say go behind your back? sure get in up close and annoy them, want your kid to tell you stuff? stay out of their business don't tell them how to act let them learn from a mistake and they will want to tell you stuff on their own. THAnks :) hope it helps maybe my mother will even read this XDPS yeah sure ground us we will just do it behind your back, Just telling it to you straight.

Ok so coming from a teenager, I find it not only annoying but just extremely rude when my parents violate my privacy. Being a teenager is all about discovering your individualism and finding your independence, try understanding that and think back to when you were a teenager. You're their parent so of course you want to be a part of their life and you can be, but try not to push it by getting too nosy.

I don't see how you could not get emotionally involved, they're your babies and they are still growing and maturing, you can try to mentor but throwing yourself at them would only alienate them from you...
