Politics aside, what chance do you think Malia and Sasha have to have normal teen years int he White House? 

I was watching this conversation with Abby Huntsman and the authors of Georgetown Academy and thought it was a really interesting discussion on parenting..

 It will not be normal for them for the obvious reasons.  I think that the best hope for kids in their situation is that it will be a more positive experience than a negative one.

I wasn't able to watch the whole video because my computer is being slow.  I think their life (not only the next four years) will be just as normal as any other child who grew up in the white house.  Obviously not normal in many ways, but they have many perks I'm sure they don't mind and will turn out fine just like other president's children have.

They will be fine. Their parents are raising them well and they also have their grandma with them. What a wonderful experience for them !

Do kids in boarding schools have a chance at a "normal" childhood? Define normal.

Define normal. 

They are going to be just fine. Their mother seems to have her ducks in a row so I have no doubt they'll be just fine.

It will be normal for them. Plus, they will have every opportunity in the world, because they are the children of the party's golden boy.

I don't think any child in the White House has a normal life...

Look at Caroline Kennedy. Her mother made a school on the third floor so that her daughter wouldn't have to go to public school and be picked on...

I disagree. They can't go to the mall like normal teenagers... They can't go see a movie or walk around downtown...

Quoting Bigmetalchicken:
