"If they were thinking about getting tattoos, the Obama daughters may want to reconsider.
Speaking on NBC's "Today" show in a segment originally filmed before the Boston Marathon bombings, President Barack Obama revealed the strategy he and First Lady Michelle Obama have been using to keep their daughters away from tattoos.
What we've said to the girls is, 'If you guys ever decide you're going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo, in the same place, and we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo,'" Obama said.
Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that's a good way to rebel."
I can't say I did anything quite so bold, but I did make sure that until our daughters were of legal age, that they cared more what WE thought about them than what their friends thought about them.
It saved us all a lot of heartache.
Of course after legal age, what they do is their business.
Does anyone agree with what the Obamas said to their children?
