[UNSURE] [PH] Toddlers won't gain any "Conflict Resolution" values

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all except for Bowling Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Teach a toddler to say sorry and watch the Parenthood character values "conflict resolution" and "manners" while you're at it.
What happens when the bug occurs? While teaching your toddler to say sorry you'll see the typical green arrow flash for "conflict resolution" and also for "manners". But both values won't improve, my toddler will neither gain "conflict resolution" nor "manners".
What do you expect to see? I expect my toddler to gain positive "conflict resolution" values while teaching him "to say sorry". (Not sure if he is supposed to gain positive "manners" values as well
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. THE PROBLEM OCCURS SINCE ISLAND LIVING IS INSTALLED. I've been playing a lot since the latest patch and didn't notice any bug like that but today is my first play session with Island Living and I noticed it very quickly. - I never use any mods or CC, I have cleared the cache data multiple times and repaired the game once, but none of this helped.

I can't take any screenshots from the UI.

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.51.77.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Trying to interact with a toddler to modify their character values.
What happens when the bug occurs? As much as I try to make them progress the sims' character values remain the same and don't increase or decrease at all.
What do you expect to see? Character values increasing or decreasing following the sim's beaviour or the actions of their parents.
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 

I tried to repair the game but the issue is still there. Every character value is stuck on neutral no matter how much I try to make their parents educate the toddlers.

Could you test a different toddler to see if it's related to this toddler only ?

Hi, I just tested it with another toddler. Manners seem to increase but Conflict Resolution is still stuck.

I believe this is by design. The impact in character values that I have observed is more notable for children and teens. 

I do not have toddlers in my current save but can test this today.

There's currently this: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-PH-Toddlers-Conflict-Resolution-goes-down-teaching... so maybe they're related ?

I'm not sure if they're related or not to be honest. I noticed that while the parent is teaching the toddler to say sorry the conflict resolution bar won't increase at all, not even temporarily.

@Alexmeteor 
Conflict Resolution - The active Sim can influence this value positively or negatively by performing the actions in the description. These are not actions that can be performed by a toddler. It would not be expected for a toddler to show a gain or loss in this character value.
I am using my teen to show the actions that influence this value.

Character Value - Conflict Resolution
