Thereof, what is an example of an Exosystem?
An example of an exosystem is the child's parent's workplace. For example, if the parent has a bad day at work, or is laid off, or promoted, or has to work overtime, all of these events impact the child, and finally, • the macrosystem - or the larger cultural context.
Likewise, how does the Mesosystem affect child development? The mesosystem is the second level of Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory. The mesosystem consists of interactions between two microsystems. Like microsystems, mesosystems affect the child directly. That is, the child is actively able to engage and socialize with others in the mesosystem.
Hereof, what are the main points of Bronfenbrenner's theory?
Bronfenbrenner believed that a person's development was affected by everything in their surrounding environment. He divided the person's environment into five different levels: the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, the macrosystem, and the chronosystem.
How does the microsystem affect a child?
Microsystems include the child's family, school, peers, and neighborhood. In other words, the relationships between the child and other individuals whom the child interacts with in the microsystem not only affect the child, but the child in turn influences the other person in the relationship.
