Trump has confirmed that the First Son and First Lady are on their way to Washington! Barron has finally been accepted to a 'good' D.C. school said the President in an interview with Bloomberg News.
The quote SHUT DOWN rumors that Barron and his mother Melania Trump would be staying at their Manhattan penthouse indefinitely. "I am a full-time mom. That is my first job," Melania told Parenting Magazine. Her decision to remain in NYC for the spring was made to help Barron ease his way into the hectic D.C. world. Would any concerned mother do it differently?
Melania is set to celebrate her very first Mother's Day in the White House. Like many First Ladies before her, Trump has made it known that the world of politics is the least of her worries. Her passion for parenthood has been embraced by millions of mothers who are battling to balance work and home; a task that often seems impossible. Both Melania and her step-daughter Ivanka have become advocates for working moms everywhere by fighting for equal pay and better maternity leave.
But how does the First Lady of the most powerful nation in the world manage to balance her life?
“I think the No. 1 parenting secret is that it is so important to have a good listening skills. I listen to what he [Barron] says, what troubles him and what he is excited about. Then I can guide and support,” Melania told Parenting during her husband's campaign.
Her listening method is simple but useful for parents who are attempting to raise happy children in today's world that is often tough for even adults to understand.
“I think is important to give a child room to make mistakes in order to learn. Mistakes build wings so later in life they can fly and go on their own. Let them fall once in awhile," she continued.
It's Melania's traditional parenting skills that are truly resonating with today's frustrated moms. Most of Trump's supporters have showed a desire to return to the past, or "Make America Great Again." In a world that is so focused on catering to an individual's every need, it's refreshing to hear Melania say that sometimes Barron needs to learn for himself.
The First Lady's process is certainly approved by her husband who has proven to be a tough but fair and loving dad. His older children have repeatedly thanked him for showing them how to work hard in order to succeed. They may be wealthy, but the Trump kids didn't get absolutely everything handed to them. Ivanka often credits her many internships and starting positions in the Trump Co. as the building blocks for who she is today.
The inner workings of the First Family have been a fascinating topic ever since JFK brought showed his little ones running around the Oval Office. Barron just turned 11-years-old and reports say that his bags are already packed for Washington. It's safe to say that America is equally excited to see how Melania will raise her son in the White House.
SHARE to wish Melania the very best as she heads into her first year as a mother in the White House!
