Parenting Skill[edit source]

There's a tick mark saying that there's a parenting skill in Sims 3. I have yet to see this. Can anyone confirm it exists? I have seen my sim want wish to read a Parenting Book, but that has never added a skill and the books they want to read are found in the General section of the book store, not the Skill Book section.—ErzengelLichtes (Contribs) 07:36, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Parenting Section[edit source]

I agree that it may not be a skill, but there is a special Parenting section at the bookstore. --Dbloveshermac 18:39, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

No there isn't. That's the children's books, they don't do any sort of skill building. You read those to toddlers. —ErzengelLichtes (Contribs) 20:35, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Late Night Skills[edit source]

Why hasn't the Bass, Drums and Piano skills been added yet? it's been confirmed by many sources (that like the guitar), they will each have their own skill.Bafendo 18:14, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

the sims 2 skills[edit source]

I have noticed that when you learn all "life" skills like parenting , physiology ,etc. you learn skills instantly.Anybody else have this problem?--CookieMonster888 talk 14:37, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

Gambling skill[edit source]

I just watched a video review of the Lucky Simolen casino and there was new skill called Gambling. Here it is. the skill is shown after 15:32 Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 05:31, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

It's cool! Is that skill featured in Showtime or included in that premium content? Nikel Talk 17:15, June 10, 2012 (UTC)
I think it's included only if you download the casino. Because it includes the slot machines and the blackjack tables - the only way to gain this skill. Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 13:15, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
Yup. One more way from EA to force us download stuff if we want a complete set of skills. Why didn't they just add it with Showtime? I just hope anyone would get the icon for me. Nikel Talk 13:38, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

"With The Sims 3: Ambitions, the skill journal also shows hidden skills that a Sim has learned."

last paragraph on Skill Journal section. I found this information to be fault, so if anyone still think this is true, please confirm this information.

Sims 2: Apartment Life Psychology Glitch[edit source]

LOL I should make my Sims learn Psychology more often. If psychology really is the culprit, I'll have my Sims maximizing all their skills faster than you can run a mile! C.Syde65 (talk) 08:46, February 8, 2014 (UTC)

I believe that is the culprit, yes. It made the game pretty boring though. As soon as all 7 skills are maximized, nothing really needs to be done. Thankfully there's a wide selection of skills for Sims to learn in The Sims 3. Nikel Talk Vote! 09:06, February 8, 2014 (UTC)
