[FIXED] Sims can't help toddlers to potty

Unable to teach toddlers after the June Update

★★★★★ Novice

After taking the new update from June 3 and June 4, I am having couple of issues, but let me focus on one at a time, and the most important to me right now is that I seem to be unable to teach my toddlers anything anymore or do almost any of the parental/toddler interactions.

 

Some specific examples:

  1. I tried to help my toddlers learn to go potty and they will get carried there, but then the adults never teach them.  They just wander off and do their own thing while the toddler finishes their business.
  2. I tried to teach my toddlers via flash cards...but when I click on the toddlers, there no longer is an option to do the flashcards in any of the interaction menus.  
  3. Teaching Blocks also doesn't work...there is no interaction when I click on the toddler to teach blocks in any menu.  I can click on the blocks directly, but then the parent just takes them to the blocks and the child starts playing with them...the parent then again, wanders off to do their own thing and not do the mentoring part of the interaction
  4. I cannot click on the playhouse and have an interaction to play dolls with my toddlers.  Even if the toddler is playing there already, any adult gets no interaction at all to play with the doll house, almost like it is not there at all.  If I click on the toddler I can do some interactions for feeding, cleaning and the hugging, but nothing to Join them playing.

So while I can tend to the basic needs of the child from the parental view, I am missing a ton of the interactions to help them learn faster.  I don't have any idea why this has happened.  It was working before I did the new updates.

 

As I am at a critical time for my toddlers, I can't really play Sims 4 until this is fixed or I have a workaround.  

 

Thank you for your attention.

@SersieSugita Thought I was going crazy, glad to see this on here and that it's not just me! Also for me, while I didn't test this out much, my baby wouldn't age up on her birthday. I gave up waiting pretty quickly and aged her up the next day in the game. Never felt like it took that long before, and I never mess with my settings so I'm not sure if thats also an issue.

You are definitely not crazy. Standard smile

I still don't know the full extent of what is wrong, but that is why I listed the examples of what I have experienced first hand.  As my twins had already just aged up before all the updates, I haven't experienced the age up issue yet, but I totally would believe it is not working at this point.

@starkiwidancer Nice catch! That thread is what I was looking for (but never found) and probably the best place to see if anything gets updated, but thanks for posting the link so if anyone else sees this thready they can get over to that one.  So we are definitely not alone. Standard smile

I have this as well, and though I made another thread, this seems to be the best place for this issue.  I am copying over the text from my other thread here:

I do not have eco lifestyle and no mods or cc. My older sims will start the potty interaction then leave, same with blocks. But they will teach with flash cards or teach to talk.
