U.S. President, Barack Obama decided to share some of his own parental advice, based on his experiences of raising his two daughters.
Barack says that he make sure that his two teen girls, Malia who is now 16 and Sasha who is now 13 are raised with unconditional love and rules.
"You give them unconditional love, and then you give them some structure and some rules, and they usually turn out really, really well."
Barack along with his wife Michelle thinks that it’s still important to give children chores and their daughters are no exception.
"As soon as they can understand words, you start giving them some assignments. Bath. Eat your peas, pick up the toys off the floor. By the time they're 16, they turn out pretty good, although they don't always give you as much time with them as you want.”
