總統家庭的家教 : 蜜雪兒歐巴馬給女兒們的價值觀

PeraPera | March 03, 2021

隨著社群媒體的崛起,年輕人開始向同學、朋友比較衣服、手機、身上的行頭,作為美國第一家庭,蜜雪兒歐巴馬沒有給女兒們炫耀的機會,而是教導她們要感恩與知足。因為父母是胼手胝足數十載才有這番成就,生在總統家庭不代表她們也值得這些待遇。她鼓勵女兒們要找出自己到底想成為甚麼樣的人,並不要被旁人,或是被爸爸(歐巴馬)影響。

What I continue to tell themselves(her daughter) is that they have to walk their own walk, you know, they cannot define themselves by looking at each other, or looking at me, or their dad. They have to take the time to get to know themselves, give themselves a moment to figure out who they want to be in the world, not who they think I want them to be, not what the rest of the world says about them, but to really think about how they want to shape their lives and how they want to move in this world. So I don’t want them measuring themselves by external influences. And for young girls, that is hard to do.

我有置之身外的感覺,好像我也能和其他美國人一樣嘲笑那中國孩子,因為我屬於他們那一群。這正確嗎?大錯特錯,錯得離譜。那是我第一次被種族歧視,但不會是最後一次。殘酷的事實是我(亞裔)在美國是少數。

It was hard when it was with just cable TV when you’re watching all the images and in music videos, it’s, I don’t know, it’s exponentially difficult with social media when you’re comparing yourself to everybody on social media.

電視就已經難辦了…看著這些明星…音樂視頻,我不知道,如今社群網站的出現又將事情變得更加麻煩,每個人都想跟社群網裡的人相比較….

So I constantly have to remind them that they have to live in their own skin, and that takes time too. And I try to make sure they understand that unfolding of understanding who you are, it is a journey of becoming, you don’t know it all in your 20s.

所以我不斷提醒女兒,不要活在別人的目光裡,要很自在,這要花點時間,我要讓她們知道要認識自我,蛻變是一種旅程,她們才20幾歲,還無法理解這些事情。

Oprah: How did you do that in the White House, where you have access to everything and everybody in the world, I think it’s difficult for people, no matter where you are in your trajectory, you want to do have a better life than your parents, you want your children to live comfortably everybody does, but how do you not spoil children when they have access for everything? Michelle Obama: It was easy for us, you know, because we don’t think they deserve it.

歐普拉: 你們在白宮要怎麼教育孩子,當她們擁有最豐富的資源,能認識世界上最有影響力的人。我想無論是誰,都希望能過比父母好的生活,也希望孩子的生活比自己更好。(身為總統的女兒)擁有一切資源的情況下,你如何做才不寵壞她們呢? 蜜雪兒歐巴馬: 這個問題簡單,因為我和我先生(歐巴馬)覺得這生活不是她們應得的呀。

We didn’t just show up in the White House, I’m Michelle from the south side of Chicago with a little bitty house. I got nice clothes, jewelry now, but my mother made my clothes, you know, I mean we were raised with, that’s enough, you know, you’d be grateful for what you have, you don’t look at the next thing, you’d be happy with what you have, and that’s how we work in the White House, that didn’t change because we moved to a different house, you know the house didn’t define us, it’s the values that defines us.

我們不是出生就在白宮。我,蜜雪兒,是來自芝加哥南部的人,在一間小房子長大,現在我有好的衣服和首飾,但當初,我母親幫我縫製衣服,這就是我被教養的方式,夠了就好,感恩所有擁有的東西,別過度要求,妳要高興有足夠的東西,所以,在白宮我們也是這樣生活,我們並沒有因為搬入白宮而改變。住的房子不代表自己是誰,自己的價值觀才真正代表你自己。
