So, we see in season six, episode five that the Children of the Forest create the White Walkers to to protect themselves from the First Men.

Because they made the Walkers to protect them against the First Men, I am assuming they controlled them.

So how did they lose control over them? Or did they ever have control over them? And why can't they control them now?

    @Gallifreyan, I don't, it is an assumption. Something I was hoping the answer would clear up. – KyloRen Feb 5 '17 at 11:08

    @muru, an assumption is an assumption. If you think it is wrong write and answer and I will gladly accept it if it has sources. – KyloRen Feb 5 '17 at 12:18

    I'm throwing shade here a little bit, but I don't think the 'ASOIAF' tag is needed here, since we don't know if that's the same origin story which will transpire. Also, as a result of that, we probably won't have an answer to this. – Möoz Feb 5 '17 at 20:35
