I have a game where my character has both of these perks unlocked and so I stopped playing for a while waiting for this patch to fix it. However, now I have updated my game and the additional skills are still not being applied. I have 4 friends and 16 living children. I tried restarting the game again but that didn't help. Does anyone have any other tricks I could try to fix this?
By resetting the perks I managed to get the "Friendly Counsel" perk working (the one where you get skills points per friend). However, the perk that gives skill points per alive child is still not working. Even after my ruler had a few new children. Oh well, hopefully it will work if I try it on a new character.
