THANK YOU (and Nyxie) for this! This is so very, very annoying, especially since it doesn't make any sense. You'd think that Sims would want to read to a toddler with a low fun or social, but no, they'll do it any time, anywhere. (Hmm... only read to toddlers with a low fun or social, that almost sounds like a nice mod... I think I'm going to head over to the Garage now.
) And I never understood why you couldn't direct toddlers to ask to be read to. Yay for another sense-making BO mod!
