    Default to keep somebody from doing something

    Is it correct to say "to keep somebody from doing something"?

    - We are going with you, and you cannot keep us from doing this!

    Default Re: to keep somebody from doing something

    It's OK.

    'You cannot stop us from going' is more common.

    Use 'keep' like this:

    'Nobody can keep me from my children'.
