You don't think

Hi,
"You don't think I'm gonna tell my kid who he can and can't date."

What connotation does "You don't think" convey? Is it "Are you kidding; how is it possible if I'm gonna tell my kid who he can and can't date."?
Thank you.

    This depends on context, dolcedell. It might mean what you suggest, it might also be a response to a challenge:"You don't think I'll do that? Watch me!"

    Could we have the context, please?
