The Sims 4: Parenthood Cheats

When it comes to the sims everyone has different opinions, however, The Sims 4: Parenthood is a pretty universally loved game pack for the game. It comes with nice CAS and build items as well as some really awesome gameplay for your parents and children.

Thankfully, there are a ton of cheats that can help you in this pack for things like childhood phases and of course character values.

Parenthood Skill Cheats

There is only one skill in all of the parenthood game pack and that is, of course, parenting. This skill focuses on raising your kids to be the best they can be and you can thankfully cheat the skill up if you want.

To use this cheat open the cheat box by hitting ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard, then making sure cheats are enabled by typing testingcheats true and hitting enter. Then type in the cheat code and hit enter. You can change the number 10 to be any level of the skill you’d like to have.

Childhood Phases Cheats

One funny thing in The Sims 4: Parenthood is the childhood phases that your sims can experience. These include things like being clingy, wearing a bear suit, or having a mean streak.

These cheat codes can only be implemented one at a time, so you need to remove on using the traits.remove_trait cheat before you are able to add another.

To use these cheats make sure that your cheats are enabled by opening up your cheat box by hitting ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard and typing in testingcheats true then hitting enter. Then type in whatever cheat you’d like.

Character Value Cheats

The biggest part of The Sims 4: Parenthood is the character values system that your sims can work on. It has your parents working toward making their kids better people and they will gain valuable traits in the future. There are thankfully cheats to make your sims character values go up… or down.

Before using these you want to first make sure that your cheats are enabled by hitting ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard and typing in testingcheats true and hitting enter to enable cheats. Then type in whichever one you choose.

These cheats work on a -100 to 100 scale, -100 being a negative character value and 100 being completely full. Neutral would of course, be at 0. Just change the X at the end of the cheat to be whatever number level you want from -100 to 100.

Character Value Trait Cheats

When a sim ages from being a teenager to a young adult they will gain some traits if they are in the range to gain them with the character values. These traits can be either negative or positive depending on how your sim has behaved.

To use these you want to ensure that you have cheats on before using them. Hit ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard, then type in testingcheats true and hit enter. Then you can use whichever one you’d like.
