- YEN learned from Romper that the very loved and admired Michelle Obama knows what the struggles of modern parents are, most of all when it comes to dates and phone calls.
- Recently she was interviewed and shared with the public what her biggest worries as a parent were and explained that it was impossible to be fully aware of your teen’s lives.
According to her, it doesn’t matter how good you are as a parent because your kids won’t tell you everything.
Also, she joked and said that in the past things were easier for parents maintain the control because there were fewer technologies.
‘Gone are the days when the landline phone would ring ― you remember that? ― in your house. And you would pick it up and someone would say, ‘Hello, Mrs. Such-And-Such. My name is Blank, and I’m calling to speak to Malia.’ And you’d go, ‘This is the person who’s talking to my daughter’ ― boy, girl, whatever.’
But she and former President Barack Obama have confessed that they don’t feel so worried about her daughters starting going out because they have taught them values and Obama said he felt secure for two reasons:
‘One is my wife Michelle — she's such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence. Hopefully, I've been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife. The second is Secret Service.’
The former first lady and her husband are reportedly looking for a new place to live because it has been suggested that Washington D.C. is like a swamp, a word used to describe the way they even do politics these days.
