In my life my mother raised three children on her own for many years. Family and close
friends were the upmost importance. Not only that but to accept all kinds of people no matter
what their ethnicity.
Religion wasn’t a big part until I was about twelve or thirteen. Then it became a huge part
through my teen years. I learned many core values, the importance of study, how to approach
strangers, and how to speak in front of an audience. These experiences were definitely on the
nurture side of Brofenbrenners theory that includes:
The microsystem consists of our primary daily environment: family, school, neighborhood, relig
ious, and group aliaons.” (Bronfenbrenner, 1979)
Growing up I was involved in the fine arts, which I believe are inherited. My aunt and a
couple of others in my family also are very creative. On the other hand being a hard worker was
more or less instilled in me by my step father.
So in conclusion Brofenbrenners theory is not too bad, it just needs to include more gene
research and possibly pinpoint which genes make a person tend to be one way or the other. I am
a firm believer that most people can be taught and will accept their environment given enough
time and nurturing.
