Published:
WASHINGTON -- Michelle Obama says she tries not to tell President Barack Obama what to do because "he's got enough people in his ear."
She said she tries "to stay out of his ear."
Mrs. Obama said she and the president treat their private quarters on the second floor of the White House as a sanctuary, particularly when daughters Malia and Sasha are home. She said the girls like to talk about their day, which often has little to do with what's going on in the rest of the world.
The first lady said everyone has to have their "safe haven" and, for her family, that place is home.
Mrs. Obama spoke in a taped interview with ABC News, which released excerpts. The Obamas' full interview with Barbara Walters airs Friday night.
