On Thursday's episode of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Arianna offered her opinion on the "tiger mom" controversy and whether she thinks taking a tough, hard-lined approach to parenting is the best way to raise children.

"I'm completely against it," Arianna, the mother of two teenage daughters, said. "The most important thing a mom can give her children is that sense of being loved no matter whether you succeed or fail."

Arianna continued by saying she believes the world is hard enough on people, and the best gift a parent can give their children is unconditional love. "The world is constantly going to be judging them," she said. "The idea that suddenly discipline and incredible expectations is the way to go as a parent is completely the wrong direction."
