The Influences and Impact on the Bioecological Model Systems SOC 312: Child, Family & Society Instructor: Lynsey Ulibarri September 17, 2012 The Influences and Impact of the Bioecological Model Systems In today society children develop is a very important process that each parents, caregiver and individual should know. Mainly we can conclude that every child do not develop the same and actually cannot be treated the same when they go through their stages of development. One theory that helps us to understand the way children and adolescents develop is the Bioecological Model of Human Development. The Ecological systems theory was originated by the famous Urie Bronfenbrenner, who believed that children developed within a complex…show more content…
He stated that “resources hazards, life styles, opportunity structures, life course options and patterns of social interchange” (Bronfenbrenner, 1993). Most of all the Bioecological Model of Human Development is the views that an individual develop within a complex system of relationships affected by multiple structures of the surrounding and environment. Bronfenbrenner model system is differing from each other in various ways. Take the micro-system it tell us that children are influences by neighborhood, school, family or the child care center, which carry a strong impact on the development. Study shows in this level how the child behavior affects the parents and the parents affect the child. He call these bidirectional influences and he conduct a study showing other scientists and teachers how they exist in the environment. Furthermore, the micro-system, bidirectional can be proven to have the greatest impact or influences on the child development. The mesosystem plays it part in the model system too. It differs by showing the connection between the children in the micro-system. These connections can be between the teacher and parent or the community and the church. The exosystem structure is differs, because it describe the larger connection within the system, which say
