Malia Obama and Sasha Obama live privileged lives, but even as the daughters of President Barack Obama, the girls have to adhere to some strict in-house rules.

"The girls don't watch TV during the week. Period," President Obama says. This is part of the President's belief that by turning off the TV on school nights, kids will have a better opportunity to learn, reports Tween Tribune.

After school, the girls immediately start their homework. They typically have dinner around 6:30 p.m. and do any unfinished homework afterward. The girls are allowed to read until bedtime -- Malia's is 9 p.m. while Sasha's is a half hour earlier -- the President said. This may seem harsh, but we're sure the Obama sisters get to DVR their favorite shows and watch them on the weekends.

FILE - In this Feb. 18, 2009 file photo, President Barack Obama's daughters Sasha, foreground, Malia, center, and their grandmother Marian Robinson,, listen to children perform at the White House in Washington. President Barack Obama's mother-in-law lived in Chicago all her life, so it was only natural that her move to the White House came with some kicking and screaming. Just try it for three months, her son-in-law says the family suggested. A year later, what had been described as a temporary relocation is looking permanent. (AP Photo/Ron Edmonds, File)
