I think they are working in an update... Wait a few days after the update comes out to see the reviews... I could be wrong
Answer from: Sarah Boylan
You cannot make your preteen a regular teen becuase the Update has to come. It may come soon we hope I have like 13 preteens and I need them to grow up! But we all know we have to be patient :/

You have to build the karate and ballet studio have the pre teen sims finish all the levels of karate or ballet and get them to have the highest grade possible to become older

Answer from: Armygirl2001
Hi. Does it grow up when you reach the top level of a hobby and if you reach the highest level of school? Cause I have 2 preteens and both reached the top of their hobby but are on grade b for school
Answer from: Foxzulu
That's stupid they need to add that in a future update then
Answer from: Holzangel
One of mine is stuck at 100% on grade A+++ and 100% on the professional level of ballet and still won't grow up, so that's not the trick. Please fix this in the next update guys! It's so frustrating.
Answer from: Mera
I don't think they are going to do an update where the preteens grow up because where would they live? In the parents house forever? The # of houses in town are preset, so eventually you will reach the max occupants including adults and children unless they expand the town. You never know!
Answer from: The Key
I think that the update is coming out soon because the second floor came out so maybe after that they should be working on it. It so annoying that they can't grow because I just want to make them into teens and keep the life cycle going like it should be. I love Electronic Arts but this is big foul for them
Answer from: Noitall
Sadly, being a Preteen is as old as they can get. If you just want them to grow up so they can leave, that way you can start your family over, you can move them out of town. First, you select the sim you want to delete, then click on the button below that allows you to change the sims look. Then, in the top left corner, you will see a red button with a sim that is crossed out. You select that and it will ask if you want to move the sim out of town. You then click "Yes" and go on your way. Good Luck!
Answer from: Santiadavis
You have to wait until they have an A+ in school
Answer from: seaottergirl200
I think you use your emagination i know how to turn them into instant adults! first click on your preteen and go to your closet the press the thing on the top left corner and press delete then bulid another house and make a sim that looks like the preteen and name it the same name and last name! then your finnished your preteen is an adult
Answer from: SupaDeth411
You can have your preteen live by themselves. Step 1: devorse mom and dad. Step 2: move the mom or dad out of the house (which ever you want to keep). Step 3: delete the parent that is living in the same house as the preteen. Step 4: look at the town map. The preteens face should be there.
