Okay well before you get your new tama it will tranform into a child right. Well im going to explain those things now so you understand everything you need to know for your first day of care.
Your tama: Your child tama will be needy but not very. Mostly this stage is for playing games and just letting your tama have fun. Your tama will be a child for about a day and a half. The next day it will tranform into a teen. (if i remember right) Some things for you tama as a child would be the fact that it doesnt get as much stress as an adult would. It has a game that makes your tama happy and earns you skill points but still add a little bit of stress. 2 stress points if you win and 4 stress points if you loose. this is called jumprope.
Jumprope: This game is played with the middle button only. (I think you can also use the A button ((the first button))). What will happen is you will click on the door icon after the teacher come and visits you with a gift. This gift will always be a toy. After that you can go to the school by clicking on the door then clicking away. click A again when the screen shows up with the words Away... Then it will take you to the school. You will have to press the A button a couple more times then it will start making a weird sound. this sound will happen twice and while its going on another tama will be walking onto the screen. this tama will be the kid you have to beat or whatever. then a rope will appear. press the B button when it gets close to just under your face and your tama will jump over it. Keep going tell either you loose or win.
your tama will also have baby food and milk always right. When you tama is a child you can just feed it those. But when your tama turns into a teen it will only each two of each. then you have to start buying food.
More info coming after you comment saying you have your tama. im growing my tama's right now and they are children all three of them so this is easy for me to explain. well have fun playing
