It’s a tough enough question for “regular parents” to answer. So image the what the prez and first lady are dealing with. Miss Sasha can’t be a happy camper, but hey the problem is your daddy’s the President of the United States.
In any event, according to PEOPLE, Mr. and Mrs. Obama told Barbara Walters in a sit-down interview on ABC’s 20/20 on Friday that while their oldest daughter, Malia, 15, has limited access to Facebook, her little sister, Sasha, 12, isn’t old enough for that.
“I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people … particularly for them, because they’re in the public eye,” the first lady said. “Some of it’s stuff they don’t need to see and be a part of … So we try to protect them from too much of the public voice.”
But there is some pending good news for Sasha. Even though it’s not the same as hangin’ out on Facebook and Twitter, the Obamas say she will have a say in the family’s post-White House life.
Think about this. Malia will be in college, but Sasha will be a sophomore in high school when the president’s second term ends in 2017. Her parents are considering whether to stay in Washington D.C. so that she can finish school there, or move back home to Chicago.
“Sasha will have a big vote,” the president admitted, acknowledging that his family has “made a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things.”
