The first lady has not changed her mind about letting Malia and Sasha join Facebook, either.

“You are not going to have Facebook for a long time," she tells her daughters.

The first lady has discussed in the past how careful she is with digital technology when it comes to her daughters.

“I think they are one [sic] of the first kids in the White House growing up where everybody’s got a cellphone and everybody’s watching," she told iVillage. "We just have to have real conversations even now, it's 'You can’t go off on somebody, you can’t act bratty … you may be having a moment but somebody could use that moment and try to define you forever.' ” 

Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, are more preoccupied with school than the upcoming election, she said, and Malia as the oldest is just starting to consider possible careers.

Michelle Obama said she would not object if her daughters wanted to follow their father into politics.

“I would support my girls in doing anything they want to do," she said. "I always encourage them, 'Think about your passions, think about your gifts; don’t think about what Dad does or what somebody else wants you to do.' And if it’s politics, if it’s serving in the military, if it’s being a stay at home mom, I just want them to have the confidence in whatever choice they make.”
