Twenty-Second Amendment to the Constitution was adopted in 1951. It stated that a President could not be elected to more than two terms in office. Prior to the amendment, custom (but not law) was that no President would run for a third term. However, Franklin Roosevelt was elected to office four times. After his death, people began to feel the number of term should be limited, and the amendment was born. Idea: Children could debate presidential term limitations, especially since senators and congresspeople do not have term limits.
