2 Abstract Our development is relevant to Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory. Based on his theory our developmental experienced is influenced by our surroundings which is both social and cultural. Our development is affected by our environment; Therefore, his theory is a way for us to see how we view ourselves and whether or not we allow the environment to shape us. Our behavior at times is caused by the environment we lived in, as well as how we chose to express it. His theory is explained into four different areas and the influences those areas has on our developmental stage. I will attempt to explain how Bronfenbrenner levels of influence has shaped my development and how these levels influenced my decision to enter graduate school

3 Bronfenbrenner’s Analysis Bronfenbrenner’s theory recognizes that people bring their biological selves to the developmental process. His theory focuses on the changing relationship between an individual and his/her environment. It focuses on how one’s developmental is based on the relationships that form his/her environment. One can still be nurtured, but the effects of the environment that he/she is in can impact his/ her development. The four levels of Bronfenbrenner’s theory which includes mesosystem, microsytem, ecosystem and macrosystem generally has an impact on a child development which can either turn them into a happy or sad individual. The microsystem is the small, immediate environment the child lives in. Children's microsystems will include any immediate relationships or organizations they interact with, such as their immediate family or caregivers and their school or daycare (Oswalt, 2008).The interactions that they received in the microsystem will impact their development. The more nurturing that is given to them will help them to develop into healthy individuals. It is important to offer children encouragement or to offer encouraging words. The mesosystem describes how the different parts of a child's microsystem work together for the sake of the child (Powell, 2011). This means that if the child received conflicting ways of discipline, it can hinder his development. However if the child is receiving encouragement and support, as well as the caregiver providing an active role in the child’s life can help with his/her overall growth. Overall this deals with how the person develops consciously and unconsciously deals with a situation. The exosystem level includes the other people and places that the child may not interact with often but still have a large affect on her, such as parents' workplaces, extended family members, the neighborhood, etc. basically it deals with the   external development and relationship of the person’s/ child environment. . This overall show how outside social factors
