KAL PENN: What's the most important lesson in life that you want to teach to the girls?
MICHELLE OBAMA: I try to encourage my girls and all kids out there: don't be afraid to
try hard things, don't be afraid to fail.  Um, but learn how to get back up, and keep
moving forward.  And that's one of the things I admire about my husband.  And he just doesn't
back down from a challenge and I tell my girls all the time, just when you think you're tired,
you know, that's when you're learning, that's when you're growing, really.
KAL PENN: That's awesome advice.
