A recent parenting joke about George in Young Sheldon confirms Sheldon's story about his dad on The Big Bang Theory. Young Sheldon portrays George as a devoted, albeit flawed father, while The Big Bang Theory described him as a bad parent who was always drunk and barely participated in raising his children. A promotional post by the official Young Sheldon Twitter account pokes fun at George's parenting skills, implying that he is a passive parent who doesn't care enough to be actively involved in the affairs at home. Young Sheldon needs to start George's downfall immediately, with the established timeline indicating that his cheating scandal needs to happen this year. Despite the mature plot line, the show has successfully tackled sensitive narratives before, proving it can balance them with the lighter side of the series.
