My Virtual Life includes two simulations. You will raise a virtual child to age 18. Then the project will switch so that you will make decisions about your own life. You will complete the My Virtual Life during weeks 2 to 7. You will submit a reaction paper to the assignment box during each of these weeks.
In this module, you will begin the My Virtual Life Simulation. You will start the program by responding to questions regarding your personality and appearance. The program will congratulate you on the birth of your son or daughter. These are the only sections that you will complete for Module 2.
In your first reaction paper, please respond to the questions below:
1. What is the purpose of assessing your appearance and personality at the beginning of the program?
2. Did the program give you son or a daughter? What did you name your child?
3. Was your baby born on time or early? Discuss the risks associate with preterm and small-to-date babies.
4. Explain some changes that occur in families after the birth of a new baby.
