Guide to Children

This guide is all about sim children.

Childhood

Childhood lasts 8 days and revolves around:

  • Learning to study
  • Getting good grades
  • Making friends
  • Building skills
  • Getting Aspiration as high as possible

But whew! Finally your young Sim is fairly independent. They can now bathe themselves, hire services, get snacks from the fridge, order pizza and groceries, and make muffins in the toy oven.

Needs

  • Children have no Environment need but other than that, their needs are the same. The most important needs to children are Social, Hunger and Fun.
  • Socially, children are somewhat limited in their interactions. In many cases (such as Attack), they can do the same interactions as older Sims but only with other children. Friends are very important to them. They can invite other children or non-household blood relatives over by using the phone and may use the computer to chat to other children as well.

Skills

  • Skills become more important during this stage but are still optional. Children can learn all skills but they can only get Charisma from two Charisma-training career rewards (from the Business and Politics career tracks). Cooking is a bit different, too, because they can't use kitchen appliances. They can use the bookcase or the toy oven to learn Cooking, though.
  • Children can receive help learning a skill on a career reward by a Sim with a higher skill level. They may also have their personality traits altered by being Encouraged by older Sims. The older the Sims and more extreme their personalities, the faster change can be made.

Learning to Study

  • What's more important than basic skills is learning how to study. Having an older Sim help with homework teaches children this skill. Once children learn how to study, they can do homework alone much faster, leaving more time to do other things. A child with very bad grades will be taken away by the Social Worker so learning this skill can be crucial.


Death

Children can die but only from disease, drowning, or fire. They cannot starve to death, though. If children get to the point of hunger failure, they are taken away by the Social Worker.
