The Sims 4 - How to Do Homework

If you ever raise kids in The Sims 4, you will eventually run into a minor problem. Kids need to do their homework in this game and they will rarely do it without some direction. Depending on how rebellious your Sim is, you will have to remind them to do their work. So, if you’re wondering how you can remind your Sim to do their homework in The Sims 4, you’ve come to the right place!

How to Do Homework in The Sims 4

In order to convince a Sim to do their homework in The Sims 4, you will need to enter their inventory – in the bottom right corner of the screen – and locate their homework book. This item begins as an orange book and changes color as a Sim progresses through their life, though it will always be labeled with “Homework.” Find the homework in the Sim’s inventory, then click on it to bring up an interaction menu. Click on “Do Homework,” “Breeze Through Homework,” or “Dominate Homework” to complete the task.

Homework typically takes any Sim one hour to complete. However, there are ways to speed this up. A “Study Spot” lot will boost homework speed by 50%. A young Sim with high skill levels in the four major qualities will be able to “Breeze Through Homework” or “Dominate Homework,” each of which will improve the Sim’s speed by a little bit.

If you misplace your homework book, then you can purchase a new one from a book case for §1, or they can simply borrow one from another Sim. It doesn’t need to be their homework!

If you have the Discover University expansion, then young adult Sims will be subjected to homework as well.  They do not need to do homework to get a high grade. However, it is better to have them do homework than spend hours studying or editing term papers.
