Children do not grow older, and cannot gain skill points. Unlike later games, children can care for babies. Children should go to school every day to maintain good grades, as they will lose a full grade level if they miss a day. They can regain some of that by studying from a bookcase or on a computer, and can even regain the full grade level if they study enough. In The Sims, it is possible for children to live alone, be created by themselves and take care of babies. In The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories, this is not possible except by killing the adults in-game.
