“the team probably thought it more realistic for toddlers not to interact with unknown sims. It would make sense IF family members didn't consider each other as strangers before they "meet" for the first time. Problem is that they do, so, as it has been said, toddlers can't interact with their grandparents or cousins if not in the same household“

Except that toddlers can interact with strangers. The first interaction is “talk to stranger” and then after that’s complete you can do all the interactions the toddler can with their parents (whatever they’ve unlocked based on their communication skill). I see it as similar to “friendly introduction” comes first for adult sims, and then regular interactions.

 

The problem is, this isn’t available for aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents. I wish it was. I think it would be easy to change. Change the interactions between family to be the same as the interactions between strangers.

Hello!

 

I have a related problem. 

My grandparents live for themselves, and my kid could not talk to them as a toddler, but now she is a child. Both grandparents are famous and now totally strangers and their grandchild have to attempt introduction like a fan. It provokes.. 

 

Update: The granddaughter tried to introduce herself, but Grandma would not greet back

Hi, idk if you still need input but I can send my saves. It happens every time I have toddlers who are related to sims outside the household. Where do I send it?

Hi there Crin! 

Should I send my save as well? I have the same issue with toddlers and relatives outside the household... They can't talk to anybody, there is no "talk to stranger interaction". Only toddlers with the charmer trait can interact with relatives, as they can just "charm" anybody...
