Have a quick question about the child skills/multiplier. In the example where it states "5 child skills" or "8 child skills" is this points within the specific skills or are there more than 4 toddler specific skills you can acquire? Sorry for my ignorance, I rarely pay attention to the toddler skills as just keeping them fed seemed challenging enough in normal play.

When your toddlers age up to children, they will get child skill points based on how many toddler skill points they had. You'll get a pop-up listing the various skills. Those are the ones you count. The most they can get is two points in each category (mental, social, motor, and creativity) and that's where the 8 potential points come from.

Thanks @reggikko for the quick response. I was reading the guide and if you level each toddler skill to level 5 you get level 2 as a child. Is this what is represented in the "pop-up" list you mentioned or is that something different? Thanks again for your help.

@IronicBeauty
Yes, that's mostly correct. When your toddler ages up, there's a pop-up where you can pick the child's aspiration and trait.
The starting levels of their Creative, Motor, Social, and Mental skills will appear there.

Here's an example from a challenge that's obviously not Rug Rats, lol.

Oooh, I think I finally get it! The level to which you get the toddler raises the bar in percentage increments when the toddler ages into a child. Thanks so much @oshizu  ;D

@Metropolis Man
You're welcome but, honestly, I was only doing follow-up for what reggikko started. :D
I'm glad you were off enjoying the Olympics.

Do I have to move all children and teens out as soon as I can? Or I can keep them around if I want to?

I kept mine around until I needed room for more toddlers, although one child age sim did get taken away by social services...

Thanks Metro, I won't really lose or gain any time if I go back to this save, so this works out.  :) I'm sorry too, lol, this whole darn challenge has been so buggy for me, I had a completely different bug in my first practice round which was also game breaking (Invisible Toddler) *Sigh*. DX

Now I can get back to my game, hopefully with no bugs this time!  :)

@Metropolis Man there is one thing I need to check with the team about your answer, so I sent another PM, I hope you don't mind.

Since we're not allowed to ask or give tips, and the frustration is real, I've decided to have my toddlers throw constant tantrums in protest.

Dishes flying, food on the floor, screaming fits... it's quite fun.

I know how they feel, I feel like doing the same thing, lol.

Btw @Metropolis Man  I just saw your message but the bug went away after clearing my caches, repairing the game and reinstalling, (I hadn't tried the latter). ::) Everything seems back to normal again now, thanks again to you and the team for putting up with all my messages, lol.  :)

Hi, my couple raised 10 toddlers with a total of 6950 satisfaction points and 52 skills between them.  I think that gives me a score of 10,564.

I have to say I really enjoyed this challenge, but then I do love toddlers!  I probably could have raised a few more toddlers for a better score, but I tried to balance being competitive without ruining my enjoyment of the challenge.  I do tend to micromanage so I was pretty sure my uncontrolled sims were going to drive me nuts.  And they did, lol!

Can't wait to find out how everyone else does.
