Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.90.358.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? preordered high school years, already have Cottage Living, Snowy Escape, Eco Lifestyle, Discover University, Island Living, Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work. Game packs include Werewolves, My Wedding Stories, Dream Home Decorator, Realm of Magic, Strangerville, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat.

I also have the following kits: Little Campers, Decor to the Max, Industrial Loft, Blooming Rooms, Bust the Dust.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a child in the scout afterschool activity. use phone to quit scouts and the option is no longer there since most recent update. Only option is to Join an afterschool activity, not to quit one.
What happens when the bug occurs? Child sim cannot quit afterschool activity via the phone (or any other way that I know of- I also tried looking in the work panel, clicking the computer, and clicking on the sim as well as trying with children in other saves. Teens involved in scouting had the option to "quit job")
What do you expect to see? "Quit afterschool activity" should be listed as an option on the child's phone when already enrolled in scouts.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Most recent patch 7/26/2022
Child sims unable to quit afterschool activities.
Edit By Crinrict: Added Tag to Title, Adjusted Title
Since the latest update there's no option to quit after school activities on the phone the only option is to join on adults phone there's an option to quit job though

I can confirm that I'm seeing this issue since the July 26 game update for my child sims. My sim child is in Scouts and the only option is to join Drama Club.
My teen had the option to quit job and when I chose that option it did give him the option to quit Scouts. Scouts (and drama club) have always been under the job option for teens, even before the July 26 game update.
I play on Windows, my game version is 1.90.358.1030, I have all expansion, game and stuff packs (except High School Years as it's not released yet as I'm writing this) and most kits. This is a new save that has never had mods in it as I removed my mods folder before the update and haven't added them back. I was able to have my child sims quit Scouts before the July 26 game update.
Happened to me yesterday too, and now my sims are aging up as soon as I open the game... can't even play!
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I found that if you are a teen, you do have an option to quit the teen after school activities. Use the Business icon on the phone and choose the quit job option at the bottom of the list. So teens can quit the activity. And they can quit their part time job too. I did not have the situation where my teens had both an afterschool activity and a part time job though. I didn't add a part time job until after quitting the activity. I don't know if you get stuck if a teen has both at the same time.
For children though, there is no quit job option on their phone so they can only change after school activities between scouts and drama club. So, they are stuck in one of those until age up it seems.
Hope this helps.
