In this discussion, we will reflect on the application of Bronfenbrenner’s bioecological approach in our personal or professional practices with children and families. 
In your initial post:
Summarize Bronfenbrenner’s Bioecological Theory in your own words. Include the key elements of the theory that help ECE professionals understand children and families.
Share an example from your own personal or professional experience with children that you would now approach differently based on what you have learned about Bioecological Theory. Explain the connection between your example and the theory. (Note: please maintain privacy in your example by using fictitious names and places of employment, if applicable).
For example, if we choose the exosystem concept from Bronfenbrenner’s Bioecological Theory, we realize that external relationships influence a child indirectly.  Within this system, a child’s indirect contact can include culture, community, and society.  Perhaps you know of a child and family who were displaced due to a natural disaster occurring in their community.  The child was not actively involved in the natural disaster but nonetheless is heavily impacted by the result of the disaster. This event may impact the child’s basic needs. Additionally, the parent could face economic struggles, emotional stress, and trauma after the tragedy.  Thus, the child feels the negative connections of the environmental event. You noticed that the child has changed academically and behaviorally. You assume that this is just a phase, but you still implement punitive measures. If we understood the child’s exosystem at the time, we may have been able to provide support rather than punishment.
In what ways does Bronfenbrenner’s Bioecological Theory relate to NAEYC Standard 2. Building Family and Community Relationships?
