Presidential Advide from Kids

An article ran in the New York Times the week of President Obama’s inauguration about students who were asked to offer advice to the new president. Some of the responses were funny, others insightful. A few of their letters follow:


Dear President Obama,

The first thing you need to do is put your stuff in the White House. Be careful, Abraham Lincoln haunts one of the bedrooms. Look around. Meet your helpers. Get a puppy. Talk to America. Make a speech. – Matthew, age 8, Chicago

Dear President Obama,

If I were president, I would tell people to not talk too much. It wastes time. I’d also say no to war; no more, no more, no more! --Catherine Galvan, age 6, Chicago

Dear President Obama,

Could you help my family to get housecleaning jobs? I hope you will be a great president. …President Obama, I think you could help the world. – Chad, age 9, Los Angeles

Dear President Obama,

Here is a list of the first 10 things you should do as president:

  1. Fly to the White House in a helicopter.

  4. Walk to the Oval Office
