Before hosting the White House Easter Egg Roll on April 21, Michelle Obama revealed in an interview that their daughters, Sasha and Malia, crave normalcy over limelight and fame. President Barack Obama’s First Lady also shared some insight into the couple’s parenting techniques, including that they both LOVE embarrassing their teenage daughters!
Michelle & Barack ‘Love’ To Embarrass Sasha & Malia
Early Monday morning, April 21, Michelle sat down for a live interview with Live!‘s Michael Strahan. The two chatted in front of the White House shortly before Michelle joined Barack for the annual Easter Egg Roll event.
During the interview, Michelle made sure to talk all about her two adolescent daughters: Sasha and Malia.
“Barack and I are like any parents, we love to embarrass [our kids].” Michelle shared, revealing how they keep their children smiling at all times.
Apparently, Michelle and Barack often threaten to dance in public when the girls are grumpy or refuse to smile. We would love to see Barack and Michelle dancing in public!
Michelle Says Sasha & Malia Crave Normalcy
Even though Sasha and Malia are the First Daughters, Michelle swears that they have no interest in fame and fortune.
“My kids are not star kids. They do not seek the limelight. They want to be normal,” Michelle explained during her early morning interview.
It’s great to hear that Sasha and Malia have no interest in taking advantage of their star status, and instead want to focus on living like normal teenage girls. It’s even better to hear that Michelle and Barack are working so hard to help them achieve the normalcy they crave.
“We fight everyday to help them be normal. You know? Now they’re teenagers, so now there are dances, and there’s driving, and there’s homecoming, spring break,” the mother of two shared. “It’s all the things that any parent is dealing with with teenagers except you have to manage details like security, staffing.”
