Is the #MominChief within her rights demanding the #firstdaughters be #offlimits? Or is #MrsO abusing her power? #flotusnews

flotusnews 6/30#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama is interviewed for the #August issue of #Essence magazine and discusses her family life: "I know I tell my kids all the time that they shouldn't shy away from difficult things, because that is the point at which you are really growing. It's not just about grades or test scores. Today our kids may shy away from applying to college if they think they don't have the right grade or test score. But the truth is that the kids who succeed and go on to be successful professionals are the ones who know how to work hard," says #MrsObama #FLOTUS #fashion #AzedeJeanPierre #flotusnews 1w

flotusnews 6/30#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama graces the #August cover of #Essence magazine for the fifth time and discusses the importance of education: “The people we admire in our society today are athletes, singers, reality stars. You don’t see teachers and doctors and lawyers revered in the same way,” #MrsObama tells the magazine. “So, naturally, kids gravitate to what they think is cool. But one of the things I’ve tried to tell my girls, and try to tell all the children I talk to, is that there is nothing cooler than having a good education.” #FLOTUS #fashion #custom #skyblue #AzedeJeanPierre #flotusnews 1w

flotusnews 6/20#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama and #President #BarackObama appear in #Parade magazine [excerpt]
#MO: That’s how I advise young women: Negotiate hard and know your worth. I took my last job [before my husband entered the #WhiteHouse] because of my boss’s reaction to my family situation. I didn’t have a babysitter, so I took Sasha right in there with me in her crib and her rocker. I was still nursing, so I was wearing my nursing shirt. I told my boss, “This is what I have: two small kids. My husband is running for the U.S. #Senate. I will not work part time. I need flexibility. I need a good salary. I need to be able to afford babysitting. And if you can do all that, and you’re willing to be flexible with me because I will get the job done, I can work hard on a flexible schedule.” I was very clear. And he said yes to everything. #flotusnews

Q. One of your initiative’s priorities is fair pay—and equal pay for women. #MrsObama, when you were working in law, did you think you were being paid less than your male coworkers?
#MO: You know, I didn’t really think about it. Because—and I think this is one of the challenges women face—we don’t think about salary enough. When I got hired in my firm, I was grateful. There wasn’t even a thought of negotiating at all. I thought I was there to do a good job. Now I realize that that’s one of the challenges that we have as women: We don’t negotiate for ourselves. We don’t negotiate hard. #flotusnews

flotusnews 6/12#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama hosts her annual #garden #harvest and advocates for healthier school lunch standards as part of her #LetsMove initiative against childhood obesity #FLOTUS said the standards are important b/c kids get most of their nutrition from meals eaten at school and we have a responsibility to make sure students eat well b/c research shows they do better in school as a result.
"I'm going to fight until the bitter end to make sure that every kid in this country continues to have the best nutrition that they can have in our schools, b/c these kids, all of these kids are worth it," #MrsObama said. "They are absolutely worth it." #flotusnews

  •   defiance345 The future of our country is worth the best we can offer! Political bickering over a school lunch program that offers good nutrition due to costs only highlights the need to reexamine the budget for school lunches. A healthy diet = healthy children who are physically and mentally ready for the challenges and joys of school. 4w
