How to Do Homework in The Sims 4

After your child or teenager completes a day at school and returns home, you’ll find a daily task prompting them to do their homework. If you head into their inventory, you’ll notice either a yellow or blue book among their items. This book is their homework for the day!

To finish your character’s homework, select the book in their inventory and click “Do Homework”. They’ll spend an hour or two reading this book, which is the visual indicator that they’re finishing their homework. Once your child or teenage sim is done, a notification will appear in the top-right corner of your screen, telling you they have completed their homework for the day. From here, you have the option to complete extra credit, which helps increase the character’s grades.

To make this process a little easier for the child, you can select an adult sim, click on the child and pick “Help with Homework”. Not only does this let the two characters bond, but it’ll help the child sim finish their homework quicker.

The Sims 4 is available to play on PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 through the official website. If you’d like to learn more about the game, check out our Wants and Fears Guide and How to Download the Wicked Whims Mod in The Sims 4.
