And another product that makes life for teens easier *laughs*

This hack enables teenagers who live on their own to teach themselves how to do homework. After finishing the task, the want "Ask for Homework Help" is satisfied (if this want exists), and the memory is updated. Teenagers who live with their parents can decide to ask one of the parents for help or to teach themselves, while children have always to ask for homework help in order to learn this task.

Teens need about 1 hour instead of 2 to finish the first homework, and in this time they learn it as if they were being taught by a parent. Here I simply assumed that teens are both intelligent and experienced enough to learn the task quickly. Children, though, aren't supposed to live alone and are expected to have at least one parent around to teach them, and thus they still need about 2 hours if they haven't learned yet to do homework, and also 1 hour if they have learned it.

This hack works with SEASONS. No modifications necessary.

Bugfix 2008-05-29
If two or more teens who have not yet learned to study live in one family and teach themselves how to do homework, the memories were set incorrectly. Also, when one of two ore more teens in one family asks to be taught, the memories were assigned to wrong sims. This is fixed. I added the option that teens can ask other teens to teach / to be taught.
