You don't seem to understand sudo.

It lets you control finely under which conditions a normal user
is able to change to root. One posibility (one edit of /etc/sudoers
away) would be "never", if you like that.

Another (imo more sensible) would be: when doing backup, always;
when installing packages, only this or that user, giving her credentials;
or giving root's credentials.

You name it.
