Introducing The Parenting Styles Mod!

Parenthood has become an essential aspect of our favorite game, especially since the launch of The Sims 4: Parenthood. It is the fifth game pack for the fourth installment of the Sims franchise, taking after the concepts originally introduced in The Sims 3: Generations. As parents in the game, our Sims can definitely shape the future of their little kids, depending on their day-to-day lives, which include the activities and learnings that they partake in. To make parenting matters more interesting, Simmer and modder LoryNaMods released the Parenting Styles, a mod that establishes 4 types of parents and 32 new rabbit hole activities for the game. Learn all about this family-focused mod below.

What Does This Mod Do?

1. Sims Can Become Different Kinds Of parents.


The Parenting Styles mod introduces 4 types of parents in the game: the Perfect Parent, the Crunchy Parent, the Fitness Parent, and the Creative Parent. Each of these parenting styles will unlock a specific set of interactions, as well as rabbit hole activities. Here are the distinctions between the four types of parents:

  • Perfect Parent – Expects their children to always be good in school. Doesn’t want bad grades.
  • Crunchy Parent – Loves all things organic and natural. More encouraging and never puts a child under pressure.
  • Fitness Parent – Prioritizes sports and nutrition for their children. Wants them to obtain the Athletic Scholarship.
  • Creative Parent – Focuses their energy to art and music, and sees their children as artists.

2. There Are New Rabbit hole Activities.


Rabbit hole activities, as mentioned earlier, are categorized depending on the parenting style that we choose for our Sims. These activities are available from Children to Elder and can raise a variety of skills. Check out the rabbit hole activities available:

  • Under the Perfect Parent Style
