“My 15 year-old daughter Lizzie is very angry with me right now. Over breakfast this morning, she sputtered through tears: I am not letting her grow up! I am an overprotective, crazy mother! ‘Not fair,’ she kept repeating: her mantra, but the words don’t seem to sink into my apparently dense skull.”
