Raising kids is hard work for anyone. But what about raising the most famous kids in the country? Especially when you are arguably the most controversial president in the history of the United States.
There are large men with guns that surround your family at all times, so there’s that. In fact, during an interview with MTV’s Sway Calloway, President Obama did mention that Facebook makes him more nervous than Malia going on dates because, well, her date will always be surrounded by the aforementioned big men with guns and Facebook is a lot harder to monitor.
The President’s no Facebook policy for his daughters got me to wondering what other rules Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, have to follow while living at the most famous address in America.
How do the president and first lady transform the White House into some semblance of normalcy? Well, turns out, just like most every other kid their age, the girls have a lot of rules to follow. And Mrs. Obama doesn’t think they’re all that strict, either. In an interview with Yahoo! Shine last year she said, “They’re not little princesses…It’s just basic rules, boundaries, and expectations that we would have normally.”
I must say, there are a couple rules in there that I don’t plan on enforcing. Can you guess which ones? And what about you? Do you think a few of these are over the top or right on the money?
So, wanna know what those rules are? Of course you do. Because next time your kid complains you can use it against them. If Malia Obama can make her bed every single day, you can to, young lady!
Here then are 10 rules that President Obama and the First Lady have outlined for Sasha and Malia to follow.
