Always, every day [I experienced conflicts between my work with ACT and family responsibilities]. But you sort of deal with them. You try to work it so that you don't feel guilty about how you're treating your children. My older daughter was old enough for me to worry about less, whereas the young one needed me more than I was available. ACT wasn't incorporated until 1970, and that's when we started getting grants'. So Claudia was six and that's really very young. The good news is that in the beginning, I was running around less, because nobody knew who we were. There were fewer speaking engagements.
