Silly and Mean kids (Closed)
I remember in the first couple generations by the time the kids were 14 they would start to study. But now, they act more like adults and they do not study at all! Or take online tests! And when they go to college, not one has sent a hello email, come to think of it, I do not get any emails! I did do the fast forward trick several times though. Can anyone help?

I think they grow up to a certain point where they dont take online tests. That happened to me too but next generation i was fine
Also it (i think) depends on how high tech you are!? Wish i could be of more help!

Never used the fast forward. Wish i could answer why they are acting like adults, do you have toys to play with? And mine have rarely sent emails even in the first generations.

Yeah, i would reccomend u dont use the time cheat. u potentially lose alot of things. thats prob why the kids act different. fortunately i only lost my gardener, maid, and most emails. i still get proposals tho. but for others it messed up the flea market or they lose the proposals too. i dont think its worth the chance. just b patient ;)

Well, here is my recommendation, I think that as soon as you can, buy a sandbox and kiddie pool. It seems pretty weird but it works. I am on my 14th generation and I remember that on my 1st generation my favorite kid grew up so fast. At the age of 13 she would dust the house, prepare meals, study online, and she wouldn't even play video games anymore. My current generation's mom still plays video games! My daughter was named Feletta. She also never sent emails from college but her older brother did. In fact it seems that her brother Bingozo never grew up at all! But if you keep buying train tables and kiddie toys like sandboxes then your kids will play with them. My 17 year old plays in the sandbox still! It really helps your family not to be growing up so fast. I was devastated when Feletta stopped acting like a kid. These toys might be expensive but it is totally worth it.

I think it depends on whether the parents have a good career like a, English tutor. But if they have slackish, lame and not hard-working jobs, the kids will probably not care about collage or anything. A lot of the time I let the kids play in the work room (forgot what's its called) then they might have a good collage reputation. I also suggest you send then to a boarding school to help.

My kids have a lot of toys and all they want to do is play. The only way I can get them to 'study' or 'do homework, online tests' is if I have an encyclopedia set to give to one of them, even a 3 yr old. I can't get those often enough. Occasionally one will start studying on their own at 14, but will still play in the sand box or drive like daddy. I like to adopt all my babies (when I have the coin) rather than have them make babies, that way I can have 3 or 4 small kids to 'raise' at once. I love it even when all they want to do is tear up books and play in the toilet. Also the female doesn't have to miss any time at work nursing a child. The encyclopedia set does help, and at 17 or 18 you can send them to boarding school. I wish I knew how to get rid of some pets. I can't send them off to boarding school lol.
