The Sims 4: Child Aspirations

Updated on December 14, 2014

It’s important for children to have dreams, and your Aspirations are those dreams. In a gameplay sense, it’s important for your child Sim to get at least one Aspiration completed before they reach the Teen stage of life. The rewards they get will significantly help them learn their chosen field of expertise much faster. Each Aspiration has three different levels that a child needs to advance through, with the final level requiring the related Child Skill to be maxed out.

Sims with this trait will find their crayon sketches and daydreams of dragons have built the groundwork for them to be creative and will allow them to advance in those skills much faster.
