Malia and Sasha Obama Have Lax Rules at Grandma's House

Malia and Sasha Obama Have Lax Rules at Grandma's House

The first daughters aren't much different than most kids. They have one set of rules at home with their parents and another when they are visiting grandma. Michelle Obama's mama, Marian Robinson, 72, who looked after her grandchildren while President Barack Obama and his wife were on the campaign trail, said she abides by their rules in their house. The famous granny said:

"I follow the rules at Michelle's house. At my house, they're my rules. (Laughs.) I know Michelle is strict ... When I'm at their house, the girls are doing all the stuff their mother has told them to do, there's not much left for me to do! But when they're at my house, they don't have to scrape the dishes – and they get to watch TV."

Contrary to all the talk, Marian also noted that she wouldn't be talking up permanent residence in the White House. Do your children enjoy more lax rules when they are with their grandparents?
