What advice do you have for President Obama?
We’ve been asking kids for their advice for Obama since the election results came in.
We asked them to consider…
- What would you say to the President to help him with his next term?
- If you were President what would you change?
- In one word, what is the most important leadership quality for the President?
13 year old producer, Jared Herr, (pictured bottom right with Steven Spielberg) assembled their advice for President Obama into a short video.

I know I have readers of all political persuasions and social views. Some of these views are controversial. Thank goodness– diversity of thought helps us all grow as leaders. Some of you may have voted for President Obama. Others likely did not. Others of you are not in the United States. You will want to watch anyway… these kids are cute…
Many of the views represented here will be aligned with your core values. Others may not.
Either way, I encourage your to watch the video with your children, and record their comments in the comments section (feel free to include your advice as well).
Talking with our children about leadership and values is one of the best ways to help them grow as leaders.
Please also pass this post along to your social media friends, so we can collect as much advice as possible. All views welcome.

He uses his leadership to raise funds for Alex’s Lemonade stand, a charity that helps to find a cure for pediatric cancer. He and his friend have raised over $25,000 dollars for cancer research.
