[OPEN] Hurt Toddlers ALWAYS become Deeply Wounded

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Batuu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a toddler get the hurt sentiment (it doesn't seem to take much in my households). It seems that at least one toddler always ends up "hurt" by a parent. Having the toddler do something wrong, and the parent tell them not to do that thing seems to make it happen a lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? After decay, the Hurt sentiment ALWAYS becomes Deeply Wounded. Even when there are no further negative interactions and lots of positive ones. I know this, because I found the cheat to remove the Hurt sentiment, and on removal, deeply wounded came up immediately. This also happened in a household where I allowed the hurt sentiment to decay over time.
What do you expect to see? I expect hurt feelings that are followed by absolutely no negative interactions to go away over time. Especially with toddlers.
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. I didn't play with toddlers after the November patch, so for me, I only saw this happen after the December 2020 patch:

Realistically, I'm hoping that the length of time that toddlers remain hurt is a bug as well. At the very least, it's an oversight. Mathematically, comparing a "Normal" lifespan toddler to a RL toddler's timetable these toddlers are remaining hurt from being punished for 52 days (if you generously say that IRL toddlerhood lasts 3 years). My nieces are frequently disciplined by me (they're toddlers), and every time I show up they run to me for hugs and tell me they missed me even if it's the next day. Toddler sentiments should decay much faster than other Sim's.

@crinrict Why did my post get moved here? My toddlers did have a reason for being hurt, even if the hurt sentiment is an overreaction for a toddler who's being punished.

@MelMisplaced It sounded very similar to Ops and other reports in that thread but I'll split again if that's what you want.

@crinrict I'll leave it up to your best judgment. I just wanted to make sure you did know that the title of the thread doesn't match my experience.

This toddler is deeply wounded from being told making a mess was disappointing. Her mom didn't even use the YELL discipline action! Now the toddler throws fits when in the same room as her mom because of the negative moodlets.
