Trait Dislikes Children
Dislikes children is a social trait in The Sims 3. It conflicts with the Childish, Nurturing and Family-Oriented traits.

Sims that dislike children do not want to have anything to do with children. No talking, no playing and certainly no reproduction.


  • Sims will not enjoy being on lots with children.
  • Sims that dislike children will react negatively to talking about children.
  • Sims will often reject social interactions from children.
  • Sims will get a negative moodlet from socializing with children, holding, or taking care of babies.
  • Sims will autonomously use mean interactions on children.
  • Sims with the trait will reject the silly face interaction unless the sim is best friends with the said sim.
  • Male Sims that dislike children will be "bored" by their wives if they announce that they are pregnant.
  • Female Sims who dislike children strangely still gain positive moodlets from being pregnant and giving birth.
    • Male Sims who dislike children also still gain a positive moodlet from their wives giving birth.
  • Sims who dislike children will autonomously chastise Childish Sims for their behavior as a mean interaction.
  • If a birth has taken place somewhere in the neighborhood, Sims who dislike children will talk negatively about the birth when the "Gossip" interaction is used.

Unlocked InteractionsEdit

  • Sims will be able to "Shoo" children.
  • Sims are able to "Gripe about Kids". Family-Oriented Sims will always interpret this as an "impolite" interaction despite it being "Friendly".
