Response to Sandra Cisneros’ “Only Daughter”

My favorite story was Sandra Cisneros’ Only Daughter. In this story, the author talks about her childhood and how, throughout most of her life, she sought approval from her father. I can relate to this myself because as a kid all I wanted to do was receive approval from my parents and I’m pretty sure most kids were like that too. Most people give up on that idea when they grow older, but the author talks about how she still sought approval from her father through her own writing. This is what I found interesting because mainly people grow into adults and stop trying to get approval from their parents but she didn’t. This was because she grew up around brothers who probably always received approval from their father while she didn’t. Overall, this story was really interesting and shows how important the role of family is on someone’s life.
