    In the Sims 2-4 there age generally 7 life stages in the game. I have included the age ranges that these stages are considered to cover as well as the age they mostly represent.
    Baby (0-1) Newborn
    Toddler (1-4) 1
    Child (5-12) 8-10
    Teen (13-18) 16-17
    Young Adult (18-40) 18-24
    Adult (40-60) 40-50
    Elder (60+) 80+
    Now those are pretty big time jumps in age which miss out on many important aspects of life. Anybody with experience in the real world (which I assume is everyone unless there are some bots and basement-dwellers here) knows that there are big differences between the higher and lower ends of these age ranges.

    What I propose are 11 life stages that will represent all aspects of the human lifespan
    Baby (0-1) Feeding, changing, cuddling,
    Toddler (1-3) Focus on early development such as walking, talking, potty training.
    Preschooler (4-6) early social development, attending preschool, imagination.
    Child (7-11) Elementary School, Homework, After School Activities, Pranks, Friends
    Pre-Teen (12-14) Crushes, Pimples, Middle School, Mood Swings, Chores
    Teen (15-17) High School, Part-Time Jobs, Dating
    Young Adult (18-30) College, Marriage, Early Career
    Adult (30-45) Parenting, Career
    Middle Aged (45-60) Same as adult except looks older. Midlife Crisis
    Elder (60-80) Retirement, Grandchildren, Declining Health
    Geriatric (80+ Equivalent of a centenarian. Very few make it to this stage

    That would be great. It’s great that you’ve highlighted the developmental aspects of each stage as well.

    Some people have actually created conceptual images of what a preteen ad a middle age life stage would look like. Unfortunately i currently lack the knowlege on how to convert jpg images into url ones. if one could find and pose these images, or teach me how to, it would be greatly appreciated.

    You could probably use an external website like Imgur, given that JP would allow such link of course 🙂
