By Jennie Allen
"Mom, I feel like everywhere I look, I am not measuring up." My 14-year-old daughter, Kate, sat beside me as we drove through Austin, running a few errands. I was disturbed by what she said. Kate is bright and likable and easygoing. She's dreaming about become a neuroscientist, but she's down-to-earth enough to talk boys with her girlfriends for two hours, giggling. I like her so much.
