I disagree. If there is no way to enforce a security rule, every user must be

forbidden to touch" doesn't work. Rather, a real explanation *why* a child 
should not touch something is the only way to have the child comply with the 

If you just restrict people by rules, it *is* legitimate for them to break the 
rules. If instead you teach people why they should uphold the rules, it *is*   
*not* legitimate for them to break those rules. Legitimacy comes from 
understanding, legality comes from obedience.

The OP is the only one who can judge what is legal and what is legitimate in 
his own case.
