Bronfenbrenner's bioecological theory is often explained by using a diagram that looks like a target with the individual in the bull's eye position. What is his point?
A. The individual is a constant target for negative influences of a hostile environment. The bull's eye diagram serves as a warning to parents and caregivers to closely watch their children.
B. The individual develops as a part of an interconnected environmental network, which affects and is affected by the individual in a variety of ways. Context matters.
C. All development comes from outside the individual. It takes a village to raise a child, so the entire village should be trained to deal with whatever might happen so that the child doesn't become a target for negative influences.
D. The individual stands alone at the center of forces beyond his control. The individual has no influence on cultural institutions, so the dimension of time is of the utmost importance.
Please help! Im going with C

I disagree with your answer.
Is the right answer possibly B?
