Raising your children is one of life’s greatest challenges. Children pay attention to how their parents speak, treat, and relate to one another. What they see in their parent’s marriage is what they’re likely to repeat in their own. Imagine living your life under a microscope as First Lady Michelle Obama does on a daily basis and having your parenting skills on display. Mrs Obama recently revealed that when it comes to her parenting skills, she has her fingers crossed that she doesn’t screw things up:
“Like any mother, I am just hoping that I don’t mess them up,” the First Lady told a crew of reporters at a White House roundtable discussion about motherhood and her “Let’s Move” campaign against childhood obesity.
“It’s really the interaction that we have as a family that makes it feel like home,” she said. “It’s sitting down at the dinner table and having Barack’s day be the last thing anyone really cares about.”
