Lisa Marie Presley and Oprah

6 of 7
Oprah: Are you proud of your mothering skills? When you look at yourself as a mother, where would you rate yourself? Scale 1 to 10.

Lisa Marie: An 8.

Oprah: I think 8 is about as good as you can do! What do you think you're best at as a mother?

Lisa Marie: Just overwhelming them with affection and love. They need to push me off of them constantly...I'm crazy about them and they know it. And then having that, versus being their friend—trying really hard to be their friend as well as be a mother. That's the fence you walk, which is important because you can't go too much on one side or the other.

Oprah: How do you instill in them what's important as a human being? As a citizen of the world, your community, when you've got everything?

Lisa Marie: You have to be an example. I'm not somebody who sits around. I'm not happy unless I'm helping other people. And they watch me and they see that. You have to just be a good example.
