Why I think Adding Tweens/Middle school would be a great idea to the Sims Franchise Games.
Well number one more fun why not add more fun to the game. Second some might say the kids in the game are Tweens to me personally they are not. Why? This may sound bias, or selfish whatever you want to call it but I live in the U.S. California to be exact. In my town we have public schools that are broken up into three schools elementary school, middle school/Junior high school, and high school. Who usually go to the middle school? Tweens ages 9-12 or (13.) Or 5th-8th grade. What will middle school add?
An increase in homework than an elementary school student.
This may be a trigger and I apologize if it is a trigger but bullying do happen and it usually not always but usually it happens in middle school but Tweens can go to parents and get tips to learn how to resolve getting bullied or being the bully. (Not only could help Sims in game but also the kids who play in real life just saying.)
Tweens are social and love having friends but what comes friends add peer pressure impress your friends to fit in no matter the consequence. Middle school can also add.
Band (Bring instrument to/from school.)
Orchestra (Bring instrument to/from school.)
Home Economics (They bring what they cooked or baked home from school.)
Art (Bring what they made home from school.)
PE (Body point goes up )
Theatre Art add Acting Skill (Reading /Practice script for a school play.)
Gain skills for highschool/teen.
Also middle school can add
PTA (especially for single parents in the game so they can actively be involved in the school especially P.T.A. meetings lol.)
School Plays. (Can be a rabbit hole but increase acting skills.)
Afterschool activities Sports, and even Karate and Aerobics
Field trips be brought back not like Sims 3 since we're not open world but I personally just like field trips lol. (Parents have to sign the permission slip if they don't they get stuck in school which is just bad.) Tweens like to volunteer we already have volunteer in the game I know but wouldn't it be fun to have more? Like volunteering at the vet to help out dogs/cats.
Also helping out the school like a school fundraiser like a bake sale, car wash, helping out the neighbors in the neighborhood, clean up a park, also a school festival. Tweens can add DIY stuff
Fashion/Appearance- Having an outfit but customizing it to their own style. Like DIY knee high socks.
Jewelry making (Beaded) with like a peace sign or the sim plum Bob logo and other cool sayings.
A creative chalkboard that hangs on the door, where they can write anything depending on mood.
Fairy LED lights I know we have some already why not more? To decorate the rooms.
Cute Slablet Holders (I sometime can't find the slabet in the game.)
Also we should have Laptops in the game idk why we don't do anyone know a reason why we don't?
Tweens also can add decorating their room in FYI especially with photos and posters
Origami also that paper fortune teller.
Skateboarding and hover boards other electric motor stuff.
Backpack charms to decorate their backpacks.
Tweens can add playing card games
Tweens can learn to do code on computers,robots, and other technology things. Sleep over Parties
The Tween and Teens can be the host of the party.
With Tweens guests should be limited with Teens though not so much.
Sleep over activities should include
Watch movies, games, make your own sundae, crafts, and ghost stories Pillow fighting should be brought back.
Keep younger siblings busy away from party. Crushes/Puppylove Yes crushes do happen at this age do I want a romance or dating? No. Just having a crush like in Sims 3 the pink heart meant crush there are two types people who have crushes one is they try to be around that crush every chance they get. Or the be shy like the Yandere girl I'm not talking about the game itself I'm talking about that small clip everytime she's around sempai she gets shy and red and doesn't say anything to him and he's like what's wrong with her. (I was totally this type when it came to crushing on someone lol.)
Also doing chores and get allowance every Friday or every other Friday like they get a notification saying ex. Billy has to do his choirs by this time to this time and if he doesn't well he don't get paid also they have to have good grades to get money.
Alright that's something of what I can think of right now.
