FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 15 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 15?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

I can’t afford simtown elementary, how can I earn more simoleons?
This post may help

Can I build the elementary school early?
No, you cannot build the elementary school until you get the goal in this quest

I already have one of the items it wants me to buy in this quest, will I have to buy them again?
Yes you will do, but don’t buy them before you get the goal

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

How do I make cheese on toast?
Select cooking on a stove, make sure you have a toaster at that house to use or you will not be able to make cheese on toast

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

I have played the sims on a computer but it doesn’t complete the goal, why?
Are you sure you are playing the sims, not sim city?

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post


The next quest is Sous Judgemental which unlocks the Simtown restaurant!

  1. Hey! 😜
    This question isn’t about the preteen quest, but its about preteens.

    I can’t seem to get any of my preteens to write in their diaries. I’ve tried on both adult and preteen beds. I’ve tried inspired and uninspired sims. They can preform all the other bed activities….but when I click on the diary action, blue footprints appear!!!
    Do u know why??? 😁😕
    Thanks, ☺️

  2. Hi! I don’t see any preteen beds in my store. I am still in the “Read Everything You Need to Know” task. Does the beds appear after that task?

  3. I’ve had the same sim play the sims twice, but it doesn’t complete the quest. Does it have to be any specific sim to complete it?

  4. I’m on level 17 and i can’t started the quest yet, i have already completed the previous quests and it still won’t give me an option to start the quest! help?!

  5. I have a question. My task right now is read Harreit Putter and my toddler can’t read it. I even baked a cake to grow the toddler to preteen but it didn’t work. I bought preteen desk, library and the toddler can’t read it. Please help me out. I need your help.

  6. I have completed the preteen quest. Now the sous judgement quest popped up….but when I click on to buy the restaurant, the multi story box isn’t filled in.how do I complete that quest in order to buy the restaurant?

  7. An update that i wanted to let you know about for this quest is that the “Read Everything You Need To Know” task took me five minutes. And “Talk to The Thinking Man Statue” is now at one day and thirty minutes. Sorry, i just wanted to give you a heads-up on that. I absolutely love all of your blogs and every time im doing a quest i look at your blogs cause they help me plan ahead. Thank you so much!!!

  8. I’m at the last task, play sims on the computer. I’ve been avoiding doing it while I build up money.
    However now I have the same thing for my weekly quest. If I pay LPs to skip the weekly task will it also complete the preteen quest?

  9. Hi! Your blogs are so helpful thank you.
    Just to be useful the read everything you need to know task takes 1 day now 🙂

  10. Hi! Thank you for much for writing all these posts! It’s really helpful and informative, thank you!
    I have a little problem and I wonder if you can help me out. I’m currently one step away from finishing this preteens quest. As I’m short of money to build the restaurant for the next Sous Judgemental quest, I leave the last step of the preteens quest unfinished so that the next quest won’t automatically start. On the other hand, I’m doing the book of spell quest. So I’m wondering, will the book of spell quest that I’m working on prevent the Sous Judgemental quest from automatically starting? ‘Cause I really want my toddlers to grow up into preteens and they can help making money by going to school.

  11. Hey I got a sum to divorce her husband and they have 2 kids but all of their last names are still the same and I want my Sims to get remarried but I’m afraid when she moves in with her new hbby will her kids come with? Or if he proposes to her will they have his last name if he moves in with them?

    • The kids will not move with her when she moves in with her new partner, he will need to move in with them to keep the family together and if he moves in with them he will get their last name

  12. Hi! Love your blog!😀 There is a problem though… I have a husband and wife and they have 2 children. One preteen and one toddler. I placed a crib and they can’t have a baby. Please help me like you have been for a while. Also I know it isnt a problem with the quest because I’m on the restaurant quest. Please respond as soon as possible. Thank you.

  13. Is there somehow you can get more than 4 people in a house? If there is plz plz plz tell me, soon…. thanks so much for your blog! its so helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Hi! I was at the part where I had to talk to the thinking statue when my phone ran out of batteries. When I came back, I was at the part where I have to build the elementary school!?! What going on! I now don’t have enough money for the elementary.

    • It seems like your device didn’t save before it turned off, unfortunately there isn’t anything you can do other than just redo it, luckily this isn’t a timed quest so you can take as long as you need saving up the money.

  15. I have a question on some of the parts. For example, when it says “Buy a desk”, do I have to buy the 700 one? Or can I buy a more expensive one? Like does it necessarily have to be the $700 one?

  16. In the version two, it says there is no time limit. In the game I don’t see a time limit. Does this mean that my game is version two or no?

  17. Question: so I have all of the workplaces built (with the exception of the high school, elementary and the sports stadium) how much do you think it would cost to build the elementary?

  18. What if you already have a house that comes with a preteen bed or trampoline?!
    Thank you so much for your posts they really, really help me ( I just started playing a few weeks ago!)

  20. I accidentally built the elementary before the quest, how can I fix it so I can continue the game?

  21. Thank you for your blog. It helps me a lot to finish the quest especially those tasks which can be started early. I applaud your dedication by sharing about sims update, tips and guides.

  22. I’m currently about to finish this quest. Next I just have to be rude to the thinking man statue and then play the sims on the computer. But the toddler that I am wanting to turn into a preteen, neither of her parents live in her home, so when she becomes a preteen could I have her ask to move in with one of her parents?

  23. So I finished this quest and I enrolled some kids to school and I’m wondering can I lower grades …. I want one of my students to have a grade F.

  24. Thank you for sacrificing your own time and effort to help other people with this game. Your tips have really been useful, especially information about the quests. This is an enormously fun game, and I’m happy to have spent around $500.00 on in-app purchases (mainly LPs and Simoleons). I consider the money well-invested. After all, it’s not like I’m spending the money on drugs, booze, or painkillers. A girl has to spend her money on SOMETHING, right? Anyway, happy gaming, and thanks again for the tips and advice.

  25. Hi this question is about Preteens! I was wondering if there’s anyway my preteens can make money?! I’m pretty sure they can’t but I’m just making sure! I have a male preteen and don’t know what to do with him! None of the hobbies suit his personality! And I don’t want him to do anything stupid if he could be doing something useful! I know this is an old post but was hoping if you could answer this question! Ps: Love your blog😍

  26. Thank you so very much for the time and effort, the tips, everything! Your Web page is super helpful and i am on it whenever i play sims. You really help me manage the times of the game tasks around my real life by the step by step instructions you give and letting people know what tasks you can start early. A million thank yous to you for this page! 🤗👍👏💖🦄💋🎂 I could keep raving and using emojis all day to thank you lol. Have a great day everyone!

  27. Hi. I have a question. After you complete this goal, would there be 5 free diamonds for you (price) so that you can grow your toddler to preteen? Or you have to bake a cake again? 🎂 I’ll be waiting for your reply. Please. Thank you. 😊

  28. Not to be rude or anything, but the playing sims on computer is wrong. On my quest, it says play sims on pc. What does that mean? Do I play sims on the computer or something else?

  29. I’m so confused on where and how my preteen needs to hug a tree. Where do I go and how do I do that? I’m soooo confused and stuck

    • A preteen doesn’t do this task, an adult needs to click on a tree at one of your sims houses and the option to talk to a tree will appear, if you don’t have any trees you can buy one from the flowers,plants and trees section of buy mode.

  30. Question: If i have a birthday cake will it work or do I need to bake it during the quest? (im not up to this quest yet)

  31. I got the beach escape house which already includes a trampoline a teen bed and teen book self but still during pre teen quest they are asking me to buy one… can u help me ?

  32. I bought a house with all the preteen stuff I need to buy already in it. If I put it in my inventory and then put it out again will that work instead of buying everything again??

Question? Comment? Please leave a reply! (the comment is approved before posting so don't worry if you can't see yours yet!) PLEASE READ THE POST/COMMENTS, YOUR QUESTION MAY HAVE BEEN ANSWERED ALREADY
