[FIXED] Sims can't help toddlers to potty
[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? an elder interacts with toddler
What happens when the bug occurs? If i have an elder sim(not tested on adults yet) help a toddler us the potty or blocks it will take the toddler there and get it started, but then they will stop assisting the toddler (even if the toddler is under level 2 skill in potty) if you try to go back to assisting the toddler, the interaction will time out and the elder will do something else. the same actions happen on a toddler that is already playing blocks or using potty by themselves. Elder sim cannot assist. Elder sim's read toddler to sleep interaction was able to be interfered with, with out the interaction being canceled
What do you expect to see? sims should continue assisting toddler unless you dismiss the interaction, and if you do dismiss interation or if the toddler is already using the potty or blocks, sims should be able to start assisting. the "read to toddler" interaction should either cancel if another sim messes with toddler, or it should prevent another sim from picking up the toddler mid interaction
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. June 3rd 2020 patch

After adding the patch to my game I started a save that I hand been playing the night before,  i'm using my elder sim, it's grandparent as the caretaker for the toddler, first i noticed I could not get the grandparent to assist the toddler stacking blocks, then I had the grand parent take the toddler to the potty, (toddler was still lvl 1 in the skill) and the grandparent stopped assisting. the toddler continued to use the potty even though he'd not leveled up. could not get the grandparent to resume assisting with potty. after bathing the toddler, I had the grand parent read toddler to sleep, this interaction was semi interfered with as the adult parent came in an picked up the toddler, after it was in the bed, grand parent did not stop reading i dismissed the adult's interaction and the toddler had to climb back into the bed, but the read to toddler interaction with the grandparent never canceled.
