Sasha and Malia Obama

Like any mother in the United States, the First Lady worries about her kids spending too much time on the Internet—and makes sure she knows what sites they’re visiting.

What’s more, she’d rather they skip Facebook altogether. In an interview with CNN En Espanol, Michelle Obama said that she and the President have told their children to avoid “that sort of gossip mill.” (No word on whether Sasha and Malia complied.) She also said that she and her husband quiz the girls about what sites they’re visiting. “We ask our kids a lot of questions about what they’re doing on the computer.”

The First Lady also praised schools for the part they’ve played in educating parents and kids about the dangers and benefits of the Internet.

But she also acknowledged her own limitations in dealing with the Internet in general. “It’s confusing in so many ways,” she told her interviewer. “I have to admit, it’s a generational issue. My generation didn’t have Facebook and the Internet – you called your friends on the phone.”

Mrs. Obama gave the interview while she was in Mexico on an official visit. (Huffington Post)
