Who gets to teach a toddler their skills?

Postby Scribal_Goddess » May 14th, 2017, 8:09 pm

So, I have a family where the oldest child was born out of wedlock before their father moved into the household. Now that she's grown up into a toddler, teaching her skills is not available for her father, though it's available for her mother, her uncle, and her uncle's wife who did live on the lot when she was born, but wasn't related to her in any way then.

I checked that her father is indeed set as her father, and he can give her the family kiss just fine. He has a more than 20 point daily relationship with her. He just can't teach her anything... does anyone know of some way I can fix this? Do I have to re-set his relationship to her in SimPE? Or is there a separate relatedness check for the family kiss than there is for skill teaching? (Since I've been told that you can set a sim temporarily as a cousin in order for someone like a live-in nanny to teach toddler skills, I'm wondering how this even happened...)

They have to be at least friends with the toddler. 50/100. It applies to non-family as well.

That's interesting, actually - the dad didn't get as much of a relationship boost with the kid when she was born because he was off the lot, but a little experimentation showed that he had to be selectable / considered a member of the household when a family flag was added, so I think that was the problem.

From my experience, the toddler and teacher don't even have to be related, but the friendship flag may have to be applied. And of course being in the same household.
