For the trait in The Sims 4, see Family-oriented (The Sims 4).

Family-oriented is a lifestyle trait in The Sims 3. The trait conflicts with the Dislikes Children trait, and is first available at childhood.

Family-Oriented Sims make great parents. They have big families and enjoy being surrounded by their children.

  • These Sims enjoy tending to the needs of babies and toddlers more than other Sims, even if it means a bit (or a lot) of stress.
  • A Sim is better at teaching toddler skills like learning how to walk, talk, and use the potty chair, than other Sims without the trait. They can complete these 50% faster.
  • Sims have better starting relationships with family members.
  • Sims write better children's books than others.

  • Family-oriented Sims may receive wishes to have many children.
  • Family-Oriented Sims will disapprove of The Emperor Of Evil.

Unlocked Interactions[edit | edit source]
