Re: Unable to teach toddlers after the June Update

★★ Apprentice

I am having the same issues.  Both of my toddlers' parents are young adult vampires with level 10 parenting skill.  They constantly check on the toddlers, but all they really do is disrupt the toddlers' action, and possibly pick them up and put them down without actually helping.

@RachelElisabeth I'm experiencing this also. I have issues with the parenting commands "influence to.." and the command to do actions (homework, cleaning, etc.) at least in a family where my teenage daughter sim has moved away and is a part of another household. When she comes to visit the family, the parents can't make her do anything though at lvl 8-10 at parenting skill.

I did not see this on the list that was listing on the patch. I was hoping this was on the list of it being fixed but not sure if they fixed this or not and maybe forgot to add it, either way I hope they get this fixed if not in the August patch, hopefully next month.

I just tried today and I have the August patch for Xbox and it is still broken.  I tried:

  • Playing with my toddler on the Playhouse -  which failed
  • Teaching my toddler Shapes on the blocks - They again will carry them there, but then just wander off

So still not fixed.

I was really hoping this would be fixed when I checked simsvip and saw there's ANOTHER freaking patch less than a month after the last one. I really wish EA would get their sh together and stop releasing new packs that break the game every single time. So over this game.

This bug also causes toddler attention to be super low. They used to get attention when the caregivers would help them with actions. Now, it's super hard to keep attention up because when a toddler talks to someone, it doesn't count unless that sim is a caregiver. Since caregivers don't help toddlers with actions, there's less interaction between them causing attention to be constantly low. Toddlers still get attention talking to stuffed animals, so why not any sim?

Please fix this bug

Same happens to me.  Parents just walk away from toddler and toddler carries on using the potty or blocks etc.
