Melania Trump made a shocking revelation about her son, Barron. The first lady admitted that she lets him draw on their walls.
Melania Trump and Barron are not the typical mother and son because their patriarch is the President of the United States. However, when it comes to parenting, the FLOTUS is just like other moms, she lets her child do whatever makes him happy.
Melania Trump speaks about son Barron
Melania Trump prioritizes her son, Barron, over anything else. She did not accompany President Donald Trump’s campaign and decided to stay home with Barron.
According to Melania, their son needed a parent. Trump was away for the campaign, so she decided to be with their child.
In a past interview, Melania shared that she let Barron draw on her bedroom walls.
“His imagination is growing and important,” the FLOTUS shared per Express.
“He draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over. One day he was playing bakery and he wrote Barron’s Bakery on the wall with crayons. He is very creative, if you say to a child no, no, no, where does the creativity go?”
Melania added that children should be given room to make mistakes to learn. The first lady believes that their mistakes will fuel them to fly and go on their own.
FLOTUS shares how she disciplines Barron
Melania Trump is the person who Barron spends most of his time growing up. In another interview, Melania shared how she brought up her son.
She told Parenting the importance of listening skills. Melania shared that she doesn’t push her thoughts, likes, or dislikes to Barron. Instead, she lets him grow to be his person even if this means that he could make mistakes along the way.
Aside from listening to Barron, Melania took it as her responsibility to teach her child good morals. The first family has massive supporters and critics, so they are subjected to constant scrutiny.
“We’re dealing with [hateful comments], and I’m teaching [Barron] the right way and giving him morals… and teaching him values at home. I’m home most of the time with him and being a parent to him,” the first lady told Us Weekly in 2016.
Donald Trump as a dad
Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump, shared that the POTUS is not very hands-on when it comes to his children. The same can be said to the first couple’s arrangement when it comes to Barron.
Trump never changed Barrons’ diaper, and Melania confirmed it. In a previous interview, she said she fed, played, and changed Barron. She also added that she had no problems with Trump’s parenting.
