Sandra Cisneros “Only Daughter”

I can relate a lot to how Sandra Cisneros feels. Not on the part of being the only daughter in a family of six sons but on the fact that I also want my parents to be proud of me and to recognize me for the things I achieve and as an individual apart from my sibling. Just like Sandra who wants her dad to think of her as more than a daughter who should go to college to find a husband, but as his only daughter, the writer. Instead of only his daughter who teaches. Everything she’s ever written has been for her father. To have his approval. Which I believe is something a lot of kids want from their parents; approval, understanding, appreciation, etc.
