a “pattern of activities, roles, and interpersonal relationships experienced by a person in face-to-face settings.” Such settings might include the family, peer, school, work, and church or religious groups. The people in these groups (not the settings) have the greatest influence on an individual’s development.
this includes the links between two or more settings that contain the individual, in other words, the meso-system is the connections between two or more micro-systems. This might include the reciprocal patterns between – work and home, home and school, and school and church.

the links between two or more settings, at least one of which does not contain the individual is referred to as the exo-system.

In this example, the parent’s place of work would be in the student’s exo-system.
