Children in the White House - Now a Public Life

Friday, November 7, 2008

75 Days until Inauguration Day - January 20, 2009

Most everyone expects that they know what is in store for the President of the United States and the first lady when they move to the White House, but what is it like for the children of the President. Barack Obama's daughters will live a public life with their parents. Everything they say or do can be and will be made public if the media gets wind of it. But it's kind of neat living there. Not only do you live in a place that would be the largest house that you live in, but try to imagine living in a place that has a swimming pool, a bowling alley and a movie theater all built in. Wow. Now that's a real pad to live in. As soon as the girls Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, move in, they will be under the watchful eye of the secret service. Actually the girls will have their own secret service besides the media. Everything they say and do can be and would be noted by the media. Previous presidents children used to do things like most children love to do. For example, Theodore Roosevelt's children liked water balloons and dropped them on foreign dignitaries. How about their pet snake in the dining room. John F. Kennedy's child used to hide in the oval office desk. His sister Caroline had a pony on the White House grounds. President Lincoln's youngest son Thomas was fascinated with bells and he used to scare everyone in the building when he was able to make all the White House bells ring at once. John Quincy Adams had problems with alcohol and addiction. Of course, most if not all of their children's experiences in the White House will be under direct scrutiny of their mother Michelle, who vows to be very active in their lives. She claims that being a mother to her children is first, then being first lady is second. A thing you may not have known about their mother is that Michelle is also a soccer mom and frequently went to the games to cheer her daughters on. The idea of a private school or public school is still up in the air. Everything they do, especially if they go to a public school, grades and activies that both Sasha and Malia will be known.
