[NEEDS SAVES] [PH] Young adults gain Parenthood character values

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Suomi
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Seasons, Get Famous, Discover University, Vampires, Parenthood, StrangerVille, Realm of Magic, Star WArs: Journey to Batuu, Laundry Day Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have the Sim talk with another Sim using Interactions that could have an effect on Emotional Control. (I am sorry I cannot narrow down any myself).
What happens when the bug occurs? Occasionally when interacting with other Sims, the Sim will gain Parenthood character values (Emotional Control mainly) even though they are Young Adult and not a Teen or a Child anymore.
What do you expect to see? I expect Young Adults and older not to be affected by Parenthood character values anymore.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

My current Sim who I raised from a baby all the way to a Young Adult is occasionally gaining Emotional Control which is a Parenthood game pack character value while they are doing their studies in University. I do not think this is the intended behavior. So far I have been unable to narrow it down to any particular interactions.

@Devousa Do you mean you get an icon over the Sim indicating they gain emotional control or are there other indications ?

@crinrict Yes, the green floating icon which shows that the emotional control value (which young adults should no longer have) is changing. As far as I know they should only have Friendship (human figures) or Romance (hearts).

@Devousa If your sims have though values you will see the character value icon when sims choose to use though values. Like setting the table the only difference is you don't have the + or - its just green and they don't go up or down.

@Sid1701d9But young adults should not have references to Emotional Control value at all.

@Devousa Would be good if you could keep an eye out which interaction cause it.

@Devousa : Does it happen when your Sim is talking on the phone? That's were I've personally noticed it.

@StarryMight I tried it and it didn't trigger. So still unknown which interactions specifically might cause it. What a tricky issue to try to track because the green marker sometimes fades away before you can tell which value you got.

@Devousa: Ah, okay. I should've mentioned that I've only definitely noticed with the Vatores. Whether or not that makes it a vampire thing is unknown, though. (*SHRUGS*)
