  • Development, it turns out, occurs through this process of progressively more complex exchange between a child and somebody elseespecially somebody who's crazy about that child.Bronfenbrenner

    *Researchers say that before Bronfenbrenner, child psychologists studied the child, sociologists examined the family, anthropologists the society, economists the economic framework of the times and political scientists the structure. As the result of Bronfenbrenner's groundbreaking concept of the ecology of human development, these environments -- from the family to economic and political structures -- were viewed as part of the life course, embracing both childhood and adulthood. ****faculty.weber.edu/.../ecological.htmhttp://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://faculty.weber.edu/tlday/1500/bronfen.gif&imgrefurl=http://faculty.weber.edu/tlday/human.development/ecological.htm&usg=__yATmiAfTbuOd6PCGKK_4cNoAO3w=&h=157&w=108&sz=20&hl=en&start=7&um=1&tbnid=gcSZ_YfLR9XZJM:&tbnh=97&tbnw=67&prev=/images%3Fq%3Durie%2Bbronfenbrenner%26gbv%3D2%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dstrict%26client%3Ddell-usuk%26channel%3Dus%26sa%3DG%26ad%3Dw5%26um%3D1******
