Anna National passes through her Child stage without much incident, even despite the birth of her sister Vivian.
She goes to school every day but rarely does homework, instead focusing most of her off-time working on her creativity.
Any Child Skills they possessed are lost, but their equivalent adult skills will gain a boost.
For example, because Anna focused on her Creativity child skill, she will gain all creative Skills such as painting and music faster.
She can finally start to use that easel in her bedroom!
This is where the difference between Generation 1 and Generation 2 Sims really starts to come into play.
When we were Getting Started with Christine National, we had to endure the fact that she had zero Skills of any type.
We saw her cook her first meal and fix her first appliance as a young adult.
For Anna, she'll already have some practice before the skills are absolutely necessary.
She can practice cooking, handiness, and other skills that will be essential once (or if) she moves out.
Plus, she can slowly start to chip away at her Aspiration, a luxury that Christine did not entirely have time for.
