Enable students to simulate parenting a child 


MyVirtualLife offers two simulations in one. The first half of the program enables students to parent a child from birth to age 18 and make decisions on the child’s behalf. Once the virtual child turns 18, the student sees the impact of their first-person decisions over the course of a lifetime.
