The ecological systems theory states that children encounter many different environments throughout their life that will influence their behavior in many different degrees.
The micro system is the first layer. This layer is the closet to the child. This layer includes the child’s family, friends, classmates, teachers, neighbors and other people who are in direct contact with the child. In this layer, the child has direct social interactions with other people. The theory 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.
The relationships that are involved in the child’s life is part of the mesosystem. What this basically means is that the family life can also be a part of the school life. One example for the mesosystem is the connection between his/her’s parents and teachers.
The exosystem is where the child has no active involvement but does feel the positive or negative impact of his/her’s cultural environment. The parent’s work schedule can have an impact on the child’s life.
The macrosystem is the outer most layer of the system. It does not define the child but it does have a major effect on the child. This layer involves the child’s cultural values, customs and laws. An example of this one to me is when a child is born into a poor living situations, he/she may work a lot harder than one that is born into a richer living situation.
