Q:

No, that you will have a discussion on family --

Clark:

-- oh, as young as 13, 14. Yes, as young as that.

Q:

Because you can sense then they're already sexually active or about to become so?

Clark:

Yes.

Q:

Incidentally, this is kind of a personal professional question -- but how extensively or even intensively do you know discuss the work that's going on at Northside with your husband?

Clark:

We haven't discussed the inner workings very much at all. The discussions we tend to have about Northside may be on a policy level, or, you know, on an administrative level, but not really the actual treatment program, or what we do. Not so much.

Q:

You did have more active discussions earlier.

Clark:

Well, he was on our staff for many years.

Q:

You really set it up jointly.

Clark:

Sure, and he was on the staff.

Q:

Although, if I understand correctly, you spear-headed this because this is what you wanted to do, and your husband ur ged you to do it.

Clark:

That's true. That's true. But he was on the staff for many years.
