US President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama opened up about some of their personal experiences in the White House in an interview with ABC News' Barbara Walters broadcast on Wednesday.
The President and First Lady described parts of their family life, including that their daughter Malia now has a mobile phone.
When asked by Walters whether she was concerned about who Malia may be talking to, Michelle Obama said she gave her daughter a "long rope".
"There is monitoring because we have rules, but monitoring may be, you never know when I'm going to walk into your room and I'm going to definitely ask you who are you talking to and are you talking about schoolwork?" she said.
Barack Obama added that their girls were not "very good liars." He said Malia was now getting to age when she was starting to get phone calls from boys.
"I always talk about how one of the main incentives for running again was continuing Secret Service protection," he joked.
