My Virtual Child is an interactive, web-based simulation that allows you to act as a parent and raise your own "virtual" child, applying the content you are learning in class. By making decisions about specific scenarios, you will raise your child from birth to age 18 and see how your personal decisions and parenting actions affect your child over time. At each age, you will be given personalized feedback about the various milestones your child has attained. As in real life, certain "unplanned" events may randomly be presented to you. You can purchase immediate access online with a credit card at www.myvirtualchild.com.
