Children cannot help. A teen can do anything an adult can do except give
birth in the first place.

Only teens can fully care for a baby or toddler.

I don't think they can teach the toddler to walk/talk. Tried it with
one of mine. Of course, it might be that my teenager thought he had
better things to do with his time!

Sometimes they seem to be able to other tiemes not. It is weird and I can't
figure out what causes them to be able to or not. They can always potty
train though.

I've had that option appear with some and not with others. Perhaps it has
to do with the relationship points the teen has with the toddler? Some of
them will spontaneously feed the baby and some seem to totally ignore it.
those that do have as high or higher relationship points than the parents
do.

Some of that has to do with Aspirations. If a teen has a family aspiration,
they will readily teach toddlers and interact with them. But I also noticed
that it takes a day or so after a child becomes a teen for them to actually
do this.
In some of my households, the teens take over the parenting of the toddler
completely!

It's not relaible though. I have had a few fortune aspiration sim teens take
an interest in parenting their younger Sibs while their teenaged family
aspiring siblings don't. I have loads of family aspiration teens and they
while they often do teach otehr times the option never comes up.

I've had a Romance teen that pretty much took over two of her younger
siblings. I'm going to have to watch the next few families and see if I can
find any correlations between skills/aspirations/ relationships and ability
to train. I've noticed that sims with an entertainment deficit will play
with (or get the option to play with) toddlers that are using the three
toddler toys. Does that make the toddlers learn faster?

Maybe it does have to do with other traits/characteristics as well. I
haven't really paid that much attention, either. Some teen sims so and some
don't. Some can teach and others only feed or hold.
As for training, I have had some tots learn some things quickly, but potty
training almost always takes 2-3 days. I had one sim tot who learned to
walk in one day!
Maybe I should pay more attention to things they do (without prompting) to
see if there's any correlation.

Usually I can train them to walk and talk in one session each and then potty
takes two to three. That's with smart milk. Without it it takes forever so I
don't attmept anything but potty training when my sims can't make it.

Is there a point to doing all that training?
