Staff update: Update here for PC Version / Mac Version

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.

Type: Other

The link for the updated file is broken.

"No shame for bad grades" causes my game not to be able to load a household and throws it back to the world-overview with an error code. My version is The other mod doesn't cause the crash, but I don't know yet if it will work. Just to let others know before searching for the corrupted mod as long as I did.

Happy someone did this how horrible of EA to go to the extremes of taking away a child. And then as I know they just vanish never to be seen again. WOW!!
