Many have been pointing the finger at Justin Bieber’s parents after his string of law-breaking behavior, many often wondering one simple question: where are they?! First Lady Michelle Obama gave her opinion on how she would handle the Biebs if he were her son and causing havoc everywhere he goes.

“I would pull him close,” she told Univision. “I don’t know if it would be advice as much as action. I would be very present in his life right now.”

She continued, “And I would be probably with him a good chunk of time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not, you know.” She knows a thing or two on how to handle teenagers and young adults, as she says that her two daughters “just want to you near… they want [parental advice]… They want to see you on a daily basis.” At this point, we don’t really think parental advice is what Justin really wants.

Following what was just the beginning of Justin’s troubles last month, his mother Pattie Mallette told The Sun, “If Justin’s struggling, don’t kick him when he’s down or condemn him. Pray for him.” Let’s start praying people!

What do you think of Michelle’s advice?

And should Pattie take it?
