Tonight I would like to explore the Bronfenbrenner’s ecological system theory. Bronfenbrenner’s ecological system models explains how a child development is effected by the social relationship in the world around them.
When studying this research I took some time to reflect on my life. I thought about the people and things that nurtured me as I developed when I was a child.
My personalchildhood web
1. My Mom ,Dad and Family – they played the role of teacher, supporter, and provider. They influence my life by supporting and showering me with love; as I grew and develop.
2. My friends- they played the role of exploration and independence development. They influence my life by supporting me in building relationships as we grew and experience things together.
3. My journal, being that I was really shy and often overlooked; I didn’t make any connects with very many people. My journal allowed me to express my feelings and thoughts. I was greatly influenced by some of my writing and learn from many of mistakes.
4. However , there was one Older lady at my church that influence my life greatly. She had style , she had class, she was so positive, yet very honest. As I a young kid, the only thing I ever wanted to do was to be like her.
As an adult these people still influence my life. The teaching and lessons I learn from my parents are my guidelines through life. The relationship with my friends encouraged me to explore more friendship. My journey allows me to free my mind daily. And my goal to be just like the old lady at my church still stands.
