Staff update: Update here for PC Version 1.13.106.1010 / Mac Version 1.13.106.1210


NOTICE 10/23/2017: After a falling out with EA's community management, I have deleted my Origin account and have retired indefinitely from The Sims.

I am retired from modding, and will no longer support my mods. These will no longer work with current patches. Use the linked updated version.


School in TS4 is nothing but a time sink. No friends, no skills, just busywork. Why bother?

Oh yeah - the evil Sim Social Services will swoop in and "rescue" the kid. By rescue, they really mean kill - it is really a death interaction and sets the death type to Neglect, which doesn't even leave a ghost.

Statistic Instance 18282 Child Neglect is how they determine when to destroy your kid. I have removed the actions so it should no longer call the "rescue" routine.


Fight the good fight against Sim Social Services! Download my Kids Can Die Of Anything so the poor kid can at least leave a ghost!


There is no shame in bad grades! How does that even work? Do they publicly shame kids for getting bad grades? I've got a companion package to snuff out the Embarrassed moodlet.

Career Instances 2545 and 325F - Grade School and High School, respectively - are changed in the companion package.

Default Thank you =)
For some reason, when I push the post thanks button, it doesn't show up as a thanks.. Anyway, thank you for these mods! I think Sim Social Services is pointless, especially since you cannot adopt a child that is taken away >_< Can you also make it possible for children to live on their own if all teens and adults on the lot have died? You are so awesome for these mods! I have been waiting for a long time for some useful mods!

I do not understand what the people at EA were thinking when they had the system for children to be taken away and deleted. The dumb message that says "Oh no! Nancy is dead! There are no adults on this lot! Don't worry about Lila though, Sim Social Services will take good care of her." makes me mad, how could they say not to worry about them when they are forever taken away and deleted? Sim Social Services is horrid, I am so grateful for this mod

Side note - In the future, I might make a "no more Embarrassed moodlet from demotion". They really, really want you to send your child to the Child Containment Center.

PM me with the details.

My very first Sim-self was sent off to Neverseeyaagain Military Academy. I like to think that those kids ended up becoming player characters in EA's Battlefield games.

That reminds me - the kid can still be Embarrassed if the parent talks them down.

Probably not related to my mod, this does not alter any eating routines.
