For example, if a member of your family suffered during the recession, your child could write a letter explaining the family member's story.
If you hand-write your letter, please consider using pen and writing as neatly as possible. Ask directly for the action you want taken if that's why you're writing.
The standard form of a written letter is: Today's Date For example: Jan. Perhaps you have a question, a suggestion, an opinion, a request, a concern, or a criticism for the President. Avoid curse words or name calling. Leave one space underneath your address and type the date against the left margin.
Ask the President specifically for a response that you would like for example, you might request that the President visit your city or support legislation helping students.
Click on the "Submit Comments Online" button at the top right of the screen that pops up. Make sure your child dates the letter, puts your address, her email address, and the recipient's address on the letter, leaves the proper amount of space between each section, and types her name at the end.
Please include your return address on your letter as well as your envelope. Remember to thank the President for reading your letter.
