The Minor Drawbacks of the Kid Stuff Trait in Starfield
If you choose the Kid Stuff trait, you must pay two percent of your total credits to your parents every week. If you eventually decide to end these payments, you can simply speak to your father and let him know that you want to stop. Your parents will understand, but it will result in them having to move out of their apartment. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to visit them anymore. It’s unclear where they will live afterward, but some players might find out.
If you’re feeling mischievous, you can visit your parents, steal their belongings, take the pistol, and then kick them out. This way, you’ll save some credits and still enjoy all the advantages of the Kid Stuff trait chosen at the beginning of Starfield.
