Teens have four trait slots that the player can fill in; they add one trait when they age up.If Generations is installed, teens are offered a chance to defy parental authority by pulling pranks, holding a teenage party while their parents are away, or sneaking out while grounded. Without the use of mods or hacks, teens can perform all romantic interactions except Woo Hoo, Get Married, Propose Marriage, or Try for Baby, though they can still take care of existing babies and toddlers in the same way as older Sims.In The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories, when a child becomes a teenager, their aspiration can be chosen by the player.If Nightlife or later is installed, turn-ons and turn-offs are also assigned at this point.Most teen Sims will have a recurring want for their first kiss and to go steady with another Sim.Without the use of mods or hacks, teens can perform all romantic interactions except Woo Hoo, Get Married, Propose Marriage, or Try for Baby, though they can still take care of existing babies and toddlers in the same way as older Sims.
Teens do not have curfews (and can remain on community lots for as long as they like.), but they can sneak out out of the house at night or take a responsible approach by asking grown-ups for permission to go out, before hitching a ride from a friend.Teens can take on new responsibilities such as getting a part-time job after school or on the weekends, though they still cannot hold a full-time job. They can also live on their own if both parents die or if all the older Sims in the household move out of their home lot.In The Sims 3, if World Adventures is installed, teens can travel abroad by themselves.Teens in The Sims 2 are unique in that they can age up into one of two separate life stages: Young Adult or Adult.If University is installed, the player has the option to send a teen to college, where they will first live as a young adult; otherwise they will skip ahead to the adult stage..ui-autocomplete li a span.arrow Search Option Text .ui-autocomplete li a.ui-state-hover span.arrow Search Option Text .ui-autocomplete li a .ui-menu .ui-menu-item a .arrow Search Icon Disable .arrow Search Icon .arrow Search Icon Holder.ui-state-hover .arrow Search Icon Disable .arrow Search Icon Holder.ui-state-hover .arrow Search Icon:hover .nc1 .simpointlink-header .simpointlink-header:hover .nc2 .nc3 .nounderlne .new-nav .new-nav li.first-lvl-li li.first-lvl-li a.first-lvl-lnk li.first-lvl-li a.first-lvl-lnk:hover .hovernavmenu .first-lvl-nav-wrpr .rght-shdw ul.new-nav ul ul.new-nav ul ul ul.new-nav li:hover ul ul.new-nav ul.new-nav li a ul.new-nav li:last-child a /* Doesn't work in IE */ ul.new-nav li:hover ul.new-nav ul /* IE 6 & 7 Needs Inline Block */ ul.new-nav ul li a ul.new-nav ul ul ul.new-nav li:hover ul .first-lvl-nav-wrpr ul .first-lvl-nav-wrpr ul li.second-lvl-li .rght-crnr .mdle-crnr .btmshdwwrpr, .shdw-wrpr .left-crnr .second-lvl-arrw .first-lvl-nav-wrpr ul li.second-lvl-li a.second-lvl-lnk .first-lvl-nav-wrpr ul li.second-lvl-li a.second-lvl-lnk:hover, .thirdlevel li a:hover .thirdlevel .thirdlevel li .thirdlevel .shdw-wrpr .btmshdwwrpr .thirdlevel li a Txt Bold:link, Txt Bold:active, Txt Bold:visited, Txt Bold:hover .hideme .
