Everytime I take my sim teens/kids to another lot, they seem to sit down and do their homework.

 

They seem to leave it and I have to keep buying new homework from the bookshelves.

 

They leave it behind, which causes a side issue of homework stuck in other sims homes. This also happens when other teens/kids come to visit my active house

Re: Homework Left behind

Kids/Teens always had a tendency to leave their homework behind, especially if you change lots before they finished.

There was a fix for public places a while back which made the homework get clean-up that's got left behind: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/FIXED-NPC-Sims-leave-homework-in-the-Park/m-p/4705669#M46058

The problem is, that they sometimes don't put it back or you travel while they're still doing it.

I'm marking this as unsure as I don't know if it's a bug but encourage you to post in the feedback forums for this

A random kid left their homework on one of the public picnic tables in my game. It didn't disappear on its own, so its just sitting there on the table. I'm not sure how to get rid of it since I don't know who left it there.

Adding this as needs input but I still think it's borderline feedback.

I've had this happen recently, but I've not had many kids in my current games to test since patch.  Will do.

When this happens, try checking your household inventory. I know when my sims are on other lots and I make them leave when they're in the middle of grilling something such as hot dogs on a barbecue, the unfinished food gets automatically added to my household inventory. Which itself is a problem because it's hard to get rid of, but I'm wondering if the same thing might happen with homework.
