In The Sims 2, The Sims Stories, The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, children and teens get homework on school days.
Homework comes in the form of a school notebook, with differing covers depending on the student's life stage In The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories, children and teens will have homework in their hands after they get off the school bus.
A child's homework will be brightly colored, while a teen's homework will be plainly colored.
Clicking on the homework gives the child or teen an option to complete it or ask an older Sim for help.
An older household member, when the homework is clicked, can offer help with finishing the homework.
A child or teen who is being helped with homework will finish it faster, and will gain the memory of being taught to study.
Good students grow up to be good adults, so it is important that young Sims maintain good grades.
If a Sim has an A when they age up, the player will be able to choose his or her next trait.
It is usually best to ensure that both the student and the mentor are in a good mood prior to beginning the interaction, and that no other interactions are in their queue until the homework has been completed.
There is no time limit on completing homework, but doing (or not doing) homework will affect a student's grades.
