In my lifetime, the only children living in the presidential mansion have been girls. (Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm relying on memory and light research.)
Richard Nixon was president the year I was born, 1969. At least one of his daughters was a teenager living at the White House.
Two of President Ford's four children (2 boys, 2 girls) were teens when he was inaugurated. Anyone know if son Steven resided at the White House?
I remember Amy Carter well because she was only a few years older than me. It's fun to have a presidential kid and wonder what their lives must be like. Here's a good article on the topic -- kid friendly: http://www.whitehousehistory.org/04/subs/04_a02_d.html
There were no children in the White House during the Reagan & first Bush years -- 12 years from 1981-1993. Then Chelsea Clinton, the Bush twins and now Sasha and Malia Obama.
Does something about being the parent of a girl make a person more appealing as a potential leader, or more willing to lead? What do you think?
