You should always be yourself and sometimes you have to do things to make the ones you love happy. The narrators call out their parents for being selfish and only caring about what they want. When in reality their parents are doing everything they can form their kids. In both Confetti Girl and Tortilla Sun, both narrators clearly have points of views different from their parents.
Then when I ask what I came up with it is not a very exciting conversation anymore because all I said was T-ree because i could not say Auntie Reia. Then it made me sad because right after they told me they went straight back to Ade. This may make you think that I am a brat and I want all the attention but that is not the case because this is a conversation that we talk about a lot in my family. So I just have to continuously keep having my family remind me that i am not a special as my brother. My parent focus on him more then my and the only issues that I can actually believe is that he has A.D.H.D and Asthma so they have to do more stuff for him so he is good in school and at home.

Even though I am scared of what the future holds with my home life. I will still be scared of turning out like my mother. I'll still fear that one day I will be the spitting imagine of who she is, inside and out. She left her children for something that took over her life; left a great man for someone that made her hate herself, and chose to continue to live that way despite how many times her children have begged her to change. I'll still fear turning out like my father, his past abusive relationships with my mother and the mother of his other three children, and the past abusive realtionship with him and myself.
Tony trusted God had a plan for all those decisions he didn’t agree with. Just like my parents had a reason for the decisions I hated as a kid. We can’t always see the reasoning or what is going on, we just need to trust the people making the decisions and respect those decisions. Though I didn’t always have the same respect for my parents as Tony did for his coaches. It is something I’ve learned to have.

At the parent-teacher meeting, she asked my teacher why I was constantly in trouble. The teacher could not come up with a good explanation, so my mother told her “My daughter doesn’t understand racism and you aren’t going to be the one to teach it to her.” Since then, I have been determined not to let people who want me to fail stand in my way. I know that the sad reality of our world is that this is extremely common. I could choose to use this an excuse to not try hard at the things I want in life. Instead, I choose to recognize that this is only a small hurdle if I work hard enough.
I begin to tell him, “I love you too, but I feel like this relationship isn’t going anywhere and I don’t like the way you treat me.” Jake then begin to get this rage in his eyes I never seen before. He started yelling and screaming about how he really wanted this to work out. I told him to calm down because he’s scaring me and I don’t want him to be upset with me. When Jake calmed down I told him that if he really loves me he has to let me go and we can still be friends.

Loyalty and trust to me is very important, loyalty and trust those are the most important thing to me. “Forgive and forget” is what some people say but Forgiveness to me is not an easy thing to give and forgetting is even harder. I have had people that I thought were my family break my trust many times. People that i thought were my best friends, and I never thought they would go behind my back and stab me.

I also had the same fears that they had, that my kids would fear me, more than respect, love me. I would fear the image of them growing older and becoming independent, that they would never come back to see me, or dump me in a retirement home. I feared that my kids would look at me as I did to my own parents. But, it was the discipline that we enforced, that eventually grew our family ties
