Kid skills in TS1[edit source]

Looking at kids born in-game with a third-party character editor shows that they get random skills, but that is generally not obvious in gameplay. Dharden (talk) 18:44, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Huh?[edit source]

Ok, so, I was playing my old ps2 version of the sims, and it didn't take 3 sim days for it to grow up, it took like 4 1/2. Jenny Vincent 22:48, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

The Sims Medieval[edit source]

We over at The Sims Medieval wiki are merging info from that game into The Sims wiki. I will create a new section in the child page for info on The Sims Medieval.KayO199X 15:44, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

We are not merging. If you do that, you must write it in your own words, instead of copying from TSM wiki. --BobNewbie talkblog 15:50, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
I'm the person who wrote most of the Info on The Sims Medieval's child page. .KayO199X 16:00, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Medieval Child Image[edit source]

I wanted to add an image of a medieval child to this page. After searching long and hard, i found two images containing a child. Which image do you think would work better untill i can find a better image?
A Child can be seen in the bottom left corner of this screen shot. (this image)

Never mind. As you can already see, i found a really good picture of a medieval child.KayO199X 16:23, March 15, 2011 (UTC)
A man and child overlooking the kingdom from the castle balcony. (or this image?)

Number of Children Possible[edit source]

Are you sure that hero sims can have a 3rd child? From what i've heard, the Prima guide stated that once a hero sim has their 2nd child, the mother will no longer become pregnant after WooHooing.KayO199X 14:07, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Yes Hero sims can have a third child. My bard has three plus a wife!—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Children[edit source]

Is that Bella and Mortimer on the pagecover image? Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:30, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

I think so. That's one of the old images of The Sims 3. Nikel Talk Vote! 07:17, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
I thought so, but that Bella has light skin instead of medium, green eyes instead of brown, and a slightly different hairstyle. Joey.eyeball (talk) 22:53, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

The Sims 4[edit source]

I wanted to get the facts straight before editing this. I'll be trying to get the facts about skills together in this post. Children in the Sims 4 have a completely different skill set from older Sims. In short, all skill related things children do will build 1 of 4 broad skill sets listed below.

Social- Improves the child's ability to communicate with others. Like Charisma, the Social skill is build by socializing with others. It can also be improved by taking to certain toys. Children with higher social skills will have an easier time making friends and will also unlock new interactions.

Motor- Represents the child's strength, dexterity, and coordination. Most physical activities will improve a child's Motor skills (it can also be improved by learning to type on the computer). Children with higher motor skills with demonstrate better agility on the playground (such as hanging upside down from the monkey bars).

Mental- Represents the child's intelligence. Improved by doing such mental task as playing with the chemistry set, doing extra credit for school, or practicing chess. Children with higher Mental skills will act smarter and complete their homework a little faster.

Creativity- Represents the size of the child's imagination and their capacity to create artistic works. Improved by playing with dolls/action figures, drawing on the children's art table, and practicing the piano and violin. Children with high creativity will draw better drawings, and unlock new interaction relating to their imagination.

A child's skills are also needed to get "promoted" in school to a higher grade level (I don't mean like from the 3rd grade to the 4th grade, I mean from a C student to a B student). In order to become a B student, children must get 2 of their skills to level 4, and to become an A student, child must get all 4 of their skills to level 4.

If you're still trying to assemble information about children in TS4, you can start a section on the article and put {{Expand}} at the end of it. See also: Forum:Adding incomplete information? -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 18:03, September 3, 2014 (UTC)

The Sims 2[edit source]

I think this should too (other games that don't have as well) have a section list of things children can do. DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 12:50, March 17, 2019 (UTC)

Actually, maybe nevermind. DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 12:53, March 17, 2019 (UTC)
