Sims 4 Parenthood Skill Cheats: Phases & Traits (Guide) 2024

Sims 4 Parenthood Cheats

Sims 4: Parenthood has two opposing reviews from the simmers. For some, it’s one of the best additions to the game, and they love watching their sims go through various phases and milestones in life. However, there’s the other group of simmers who find this quite a tiresome mod, even if they do enjoy playing it. 

But one thing is for sure, this game pack is quite addictive with its CAS, build items, and various other features that it offers. And if it gets too much at times, and you’re stuck, then you can always use cheats to get ahead (I won’t tell anyone). 

So let’s get into the good part of this article, where you can learn all the Sims 4 Parenthood cheats and how to use them whenever you want. 

Sims 4 Cheats Parenting Skill

The entire purpose of this pack is for your sims to raise the best kids and be a master at parenting. But it isn’t as easy as it sounds because your sim would have to go through various parenting books or learn tips online, which would distract them from watching their child’s precious moments. So, if you want to use the parenting skill cheat to increase your sim’s skills so that your sim can control their behavior, make sure they turn out to be the kind of person they want and avoid all the hassle, then follow these steps. 

  • Click Ctrl+Shift+C to open the cheat console.
  • Type “testingcheats true” and press enter. 
  • Input the cheat code “stats.set_skill_level adultmajor_parenting X,” where you can change with any other level that you want your sim to be at. 

It’d be in your favor to choose a high level when using this cheat so that your sim can gain all the skills and experience that this pack offers without any effort from your end. 

Childhood Phases Cheat

Childhood Phases Cheat

Every child is different, and this expansion pack follows the same idea where your sim’s child has different phases in life, such as being clingy, wearing a bear suit, or having a mean streak.

If you wish to change your child sim’s current phase, then all you have to do is remove the phase they are currently in using the code “traits.remove_trait” before adding a new one; otherwise, two similar traits might clash. The process of opening the cheat console and typing in the cheat code would be the same as mentioned above. But here are the cheat codes you’ll need to input to get the desired results.

Character Values Cheat

Character Values Cheat

Another task as parents is to inculcate the right values in their children so that they can become good people. In Sims 4, sim parents are also expected to do the same, but they can use a loophole or, should I say, a shortcut to give their children valuable traits and character values. 

Now when it comes to the cheats, they range from -100 to 100, where -100 means negative traits, whereas 100 refers to positive traits, and 0 is neutral. The X in the cheat codes is where you can input these numbers and add the level of character value you want.

Emotional Control cheatstats.set_stat lifeskillstatistic_emotionalcontrol X
Empathystats.set_stat lifeskillstatistic_empathy X
Mannersstats.set_stat lifeskillstatistic_manners X
Responsibility cheatstats.set_stat lifeskillstatistic_responsibility

Character Value Traits Cheat

Character Value Traits Cheat

These character value traits come into use when your sim is transitioning from the teenage to young adult phase. These cheats can also work on sims that weren’t aged up from the teenage stage of their life. Depending on your sim’s behavior, these traits can either be positive or negative. So firstly, enable the cheats using the same instructions, and then enter these cheat codes. 

Bad Mannerstraits.equip_trait BadManners

How do you cheat parenting skills in Sims 4?

To cheat the parenting skill, use code “stats. set_skill_level major_parenting X.” This cheat is mentioned above as well.

How do you get a level 10 parent in Sims 4?

To reach level 10 parent in the game, you can use cheats. Click on Ctrl + Shift + C, and hit enter. Input “testingcheats true” and then type the code “stats. set_skill_level major_parenting X.” You can write any value from 1-10 in place of X and reach the same level in parenting.


The Sims 4: Parenthood wouldn’t be feeling too overwhelming now, right? These Sims 4 Parenthood cheats are a relief when you’re too exhausted with everything. Even in real life, these loopholes are what keep us sane, so why not use them while playing as well?

So don’t feel guilty using these shortcuts once in a while because they help you move on to the next stage of the game, which contains even more fun and exciting elements.
