This interactive simulation offers students the opportunity to act as a parent and raise a virtual child. By making decisions about specific scenarios, students raise their child from birth to age 18 and see how their own decisions and parenting actions affect their child over time. At each age, students are given feedback about the various milestones their child has attained. As in real life, certain “unplanned” events may randomly be presented for students. Key stages of the child’s development will include personalized feedback.
