This achievement consists of 9 sub-challenges:


Bedtime Stories: Buy a children's book from the bookstore.
Visit the bookstore (Ester's Book & Scrolls), shop books and select the children-category (binky-icon). Buy any of these books and the challenge will unlock.


Child Chef: Make a muffin with the Rip Co. Little Baker Oven.
The Little Baker Oven can be found in Build&Buy-Modes children-section. You need to control a child, click on the oven and choose to bake a muffin.


Don't Forget The Cake!: Throw a birthday party for a child.
Click on a Sim, select the mobile phone and throw a birthday party. When everyone leaves and states that the party was ok (or awesome/epic) the challenge will be completed.


Early reader: Read a children's book to a toddler.
Once you purchased a children's book (refer to "Bedtime Stories" challenge) select it from your inventory and choose to "read it to..." the toddler.


Happy Childhood: See your child age up well from child to teen.
Set the life-span to very short or purchase a birthday cake in Build&Buy-mode and let the child blow out the candles to age up immediately.


On a Roll: Make the Honor Roll.
You need a child or a teenager to have an A/A+ grade at school for two-three consecutive days (weekends don't count). To get an A/A+ grade you have to do your homework with the help of your parents (refer to "Tutor" challenge) and you have to be in a good mood when going to school. Always work hard when at school and go to school early (switch to career-tab and press X to get the "go to school" option. Normally it's available 1-2 hours before school officially starts).


Rock-a-bye: Buy a Crib.
Cribs can be found in Build&Buy-Modes children-section.


They grow up so fast...: See your child age up well from toddler to child.
For some reason birthday-cake-age-ups won't unlock this challenge. Set the lifespan to very short and make sure that the parents teach the toddler to talk, to walk and to go on toilet (you need the baby toilet from Build&Buy-Mode to get this option). Furthermore you need to purchase some toys and let the toddler play with it. On the birthday itself you don't have to do anything, just wait until it becomes a child.
(Update: As General Arcane and RayvenMorrigana pointed out in the comments birthday-cake-age-ups can unlock this challenge as well)


Tutor: Help a child or teen with their homework.
When the child or teen comes home from school you'll find it's homework in the inventory. Make sure that a parent is at home, control the kid, select the homework from your inventory and choose "Get help from...". When the homework is finished the challenge will unlock.
