Need help with adopted toddler

So, my family adopted two toddlers. A random boy from the game, and a girl that was previously neglected in another family I built.

Now, I'm having some trouble with the girl. She refuses to learn to walk, talk and go on the potty. I've tried multiple times a day during her time as a toddler and she throws a fit every time. Her stats are good and she has a good relationship with her parents so that can't be the issue. The boy doesn't have these difficulties.

Has anyone else experienced this? Could this be because of the previous neglect she encountered?

    Hi :)
    I haven't had a problem like that. If the toddler isn't tired or hungry then they're pretty agreeable and easy to play. :(

    You should discipline that rebellious streak out of her before the other kid gets any ideas! (joking)

    Toddlers are already like a box o' chocolates...never know what you'll get. Adopted, though, are like a box box of live grenades. I'd ground 'em if I were you. Anything could set the children off, so strict disciplinary action is required, more so with the adopted than the "I was pregnant so I popped a kid out" children.
    Before you ask, please consider how futile the question is.

    is her aspiration in the red?

    Thank you for the answers! Unfortunately I'm playing sims 2 so I'm not sure they apply. Her aspiration wasn't red, but I just let her grow up not having learned those skills. Was just curious about the reason for her behavior :)

    Generally thats low mood/low needs stuff going on. Also, toddlers refuse potty training if the bladder bar is full :)

    If your one of the people destroying my wishlist, please focus on the child items first, I'd like to add children to the age group I have everything for, thanks :p
