That would be great because I really don't want their house to get on fire!

I can't wait until this GP is released...
This is the pack that I've been wishing and hoping that would be added to TS4 (right after toddlers) and after watching the Live Gameplay event, I know it's going to be great! :)

I really like the additional traits based on how we raise our sim kids, curfews, family projects, and the new CAS items to help make teens look more teen-like. Plus, the furniture objects look fantastic! This pack has my favorite kitchen items so far.

You can read it here on the forums.

I have one more short question, does anyone know if we have to use the curfew feature?  My families like to stay out really late (if the kids are done with their homework and the adults completed their "work homework."  Therefore, I hope I don't have to use curfews.

I don't think you do. I've seen the family bulletin board shown without a curfew time on it.

Is it just me or does it seem to earn many of the positive traits you must miss play your child and teen sims? With good play most negitive moods can be avoided in both the child sim and those around them, and fights don't happen. This would make the mediator, compassionate, and emotional control traits hard to earn without deliberate subpar play so the child sim gets in fights, is in bad moods, and seeks to put other sims in a negitive headspace with neglect. I will have to play it before I make the call but I don't think I like having to deliberately misplaying to gain negitive moods to fix, starting fights to apologize for them, and misplay my other sims so they have negitive mods to empathize with them. Seems counterproductive at first glance. As I haven't played the GP, maybe I am way off here. I guess I will have to wait and see. Unfortunately it will have to wait to buy it do to an unexpected doctors visit. :(

I think that the Parenting skill (especially as it increases) is in place to ease any disagreements that toddlers, children or teens may have.  Also, in the play through by the Gurus, one family was more understanding and nurturing.  I think that a parent Sim's personality, aspirations and traits will predict how good a parent they want to be --- and they will become even better parents, as they master the new Parenting skill.

For example, in my main family, the household consists of the 2 children's grandparents, parents and aunt and uncle.  The adults are all soulmates, genius, good and ambitious.  The 2 children are whiz kid/genius.  The children hardly misbehave, and the adults very, very rarely argue.  Also, the 3 adult couples are best friends and so are the 2 children.  I really believe that already being best friends will help to alleviate any familial problems that may arise.  I also have aging off for all Sims, so if you do, and your Sims get along well now, then, I don't think this pack will affect them negatively.

I think that if your Sim family has good aspirations and traits (the ones I mentioned above or other positive aspirations and traits) and they get along most of the time, that this pack will only add a few rare times that misbehavior is a problem.  I think that it will add much great gameplay/activities for families to enjoy.

Carl has a good guide up on Character Values and how to develop both good and bad traits from them. It looks to me as if you won't have to make your children Sims behave badly to get the good traits, although they may go through phases (which are new). I don't remember all of them, but "picky eater" and "loud" are phases children can go through, and "distant" and "rebellious" are ones for teens. You won't get to pick these. They'll just happen, but they are temporary.

Last night, I read Carl's guide about this pack, and I think my Sims can deal with temporary phases 8)!  I guess, during a loud phase, we need to turn down our speakers and not use headphones, as well as teaching the children that they need to "use your indoor voice." :P

Lololol...yes, the internet is not always the best place to get parenting advice. Lots of good info, lots of horrible people who will tell you whatever you are doing is awful. No matter what it is that you are doing.

I was wondering if this came with an improved toddler bed because my toddlers get miserable too quickly.  If it does I might get it.

There's only a couple of new outfits for toddlers.
