Michelle Obama has revealed how strict she and husband Barack Obama are with their daughters Sasha, 9, and Malia, 12, when it comes to reading.
While many of us grew up focusing on ‘Reading, Writing, Arithmetic’, the Obamas have a different mantra for their girls – ‘Read, Write, Read, Read’.
Talking about her husband’s reading skills, Michelle said, “One of his greatest strengths is reading, he’s a voracious reader.” She also admitted that they are trying to get their daughters to do the same.
“We want our girls, no matter what, to love reading and to challenge themselves with what they read, and not just read gossip books, but to push themselves beyond and do things that maybe they wouldn’t do.”
