Though it is not necessarily depicted in a frontline kind of way in the film, this layer is portrayed through the relationship between Juno’s parents and Paulie’s (the baby’s father/Juno’s ex-boyfriend) parents as well as the relationship between the couple adopting Juno’s baby. The exosystem is the layer that follows and is described as being the deals with how societal systems influence and interact with an individual. This layer is responsible for having an impact on an individual’s development because it is when an individual learns how to interact in their society without open verbal communication; and instead through actions.

Children can feel neglected when one of their siblings have a serious illness. Annas statement, which appears in her narration on the first Monday, refers to the way Anna’s parents conceived her. When Anna says she “didn’t get here by accident,” she means that her parents deliberately selected her, or rather the embryo that would become her, for a specific reason.“Although I am nine months pregnant, although I have had plenty of time to dream, I have not really considered the specifics of this child.
