- pages 94-95: Pak Saman revealed that Ann Dunham was a tough mother, at times bordering on being domineering. “At that age, Obama used to be really afraid of her,” he said. Ann Dunham was Pak Saman’s supervisor at the PPM, and when she needed someone to look after Barry, she selected him because he was a good worker and a loyal and trustworthy person . . .
Pak Saman also discussed Obama’s daily routine. In addition to waking him up at 4 a.m. to study English from an American correspondence school, Ann Dunham made sure that he had a fixed routine when he came home from school . . . He was forced to drink his milk and take extra tonics in the morning and evening, generally before and after school. He was not allowed to go out and play until he had finished all his homework. At times when he would slack off, Ann was known to spank him; Pak Saman attested to hearing him cry in the privacy of his room after he was physically punished for not finishing his homework.
