Urie Bronfenbrenner was a theorist who studied the human development. He went on to develop a theory called the ecological system, this theory is an approach to the study of human development. It also consists of studying the nature of human beings and how they develop. According to Bronfenbrenner the ecological systems helps us to recognize why humans behave in a particular way, when comparing our behaviour in the existence our families and our behaviour at school. Bronfenbrenner argues that a child’s development should began at home (Bronfenbrenner, 1998). On my discussion I will further …show more content…
.Explain Bronfenbrenner different ecological systems
2.1. Micro system
According to Bronfenbrenner microsystem is the side to the person and whom they have non-stop interaction with. A few illustrations would be home or work. A microsystem normally incorporate family or parental figures. As such, responses to the general population in your microsystem will influence how they treat you consequently. For example Bronfenbrenner states that we are not mere recipients of the experiences we have when socializing with these people in the micro system environment, but we are contributing to the construction of such environment. (Bronfenbrenner, 1994; Duerden & Witt, 2010)
The mesosystem comprises of the associations between the diverse parts of a man's microsystem. The mesosystem is the place a man's individual microsystems don't work freely, however are interconnected and attest impact upon each other. These cooperation indirectly affect the person. For instance, when a tyke is ignored by his folks, he may have a low shot of creating uplifting state of mind towards his educators.

(Bronfenbrenner 1977; 1979; 1986) is highly motivated and gave effort into convincing us to get a clear view to his side on how the child development connects with the levels of system. He made us believe that not any of us chose to be born/raised in the families we live in and things that surrounded us. The Bronfenbrenner’s model of child development has four important factors, which are Person factors, Process factors, Contexts as well as Time.
The microsystem includes the child’s interaction and relationships with his direct surroundings. How the child interact with his immediate surroundings will have an effect on how he grows, when the child is respectful and calm his surroundings will treat him with respect and will also encourage him, however if the child’s beliefs and values contradict with that of his surroundings he is likely to affect the beliefs of others.
