How to do your sim’s homework on the Sims 4

Welcome to our Sims 4 guide for homework!

Have you ever wondered if there’s any different way to approach your sims homework on the Sims 4? Then this guide is going to be perfect for you! Today we are going to talk about how you can help your sims finish their homework faster, giving them more time to do other things. Because time is valuable and your sims don’t have to waste it all by doing homework.

We first saw homework on The Sims 2, and ever since our sims have to complete it on school days. It helps with your sim’s grades and is a must if you want to pick their next trait. It takes about an hour to complete, though there are ways to speed up the process. On The Sims 4 Discover University, adult sims that are in university are also given homework.

Little life-hacks for your sim’s homework on the Sims 4

Have an adult sim help them

Sims can finish their homework much faster if a grown-up helps them. To do so, have them sit somewhere and start doing their homework. Then, take control of any other adult sim in the household. Click on the sim that is doing their homework and choose the option “Help with homework”. However, keep in mind that this increases the chances that one of them gets distracted! Try and fill all of their needs first to keep that from happening.

Raise your sim’s skills to receive a speed boost

If your child sim has all of their skills on level 3 and above, you’ll notice that there’s a new option for homework. It’s called “Breeze through homework”. This will cut the time that they need to complete it! You can take it a step further and raise all of their skills to level 7. This will unlock the option to “Dominate homework”. With “Dominate homework” your sims will be able to complete their homework even more quickly! But, this speed boost isn’t available for teens or older sims.

Get your sims in a focused mood

If all else fails, you can always make your sims get in a focused mood. By doing so, they’ll be less distracted and will complete their homework faster! You can get your sims focused by:

  • Buying and placing focused aura items around them.
  • Drinking pitch black tea.
  • Upgrading objects by using the handiness skill.
  • Bathing in citrus soaks. (Spa Day)
  • Doing mind concetrating yoga. (outdoor retreat)
  • Drinking a focused potion.
  • Playing chess.

Common issues related to homework on the Sims 4

I somehow lost my sim’s homework

It happens, sims just love losing their stuff. But don’t worry, you can just buy a new one from a bookcase for just §1! The same thing goes for your sims in university. You can also do your sim’s homework using someone else’s book! In The Sims 4, homework books aren’t unique for every sim.

My sim just won’t sit down to do homework

If your sim just doesn’t want to do their homework there are two ways to solve it. One, you can try to fill their needs. Make sure that they’re not peckish or sleepy. No one wants to be uncomfortable when doing their homework. The other solution is to disable autonomy. To do that, go into your game’s gameplay settings. Then, pick “Disable Autonomy for Selected Sim”. Problem solved!
