Why does Young Sheldon behave like an adult while Adult Sheldon behaves like a kid?

Is it required to watch The Big Bang Theory to understand the plots of Young Sheldon?

Based on the premise set in the pilot, I will say No. As it looks fully self-contained. It's a show about an odd-one-out kid which is apparently Sheldon, that's it. We get to know about his family ...

Did Young Sheldon leave Wilmot Academy just because of the first living arrangement?

Point is: Neither Sheldon nor his family was able to live without each other. Even Missy was so bothered with his absence. Issue was not the principle's house or their folk rock-singing but the issue ...

Why does Young Sheldon behave like an adult while Adult Sheldon behaves like a kid?

I think that young Sheldon had matured according to the children in his age group but when he grew up, he found Leonard who was kind of childish and also mature as seen in the show, so Sheldon didn't ...

Why does Young Sheldon behave like an adult while Adult Sheldon behaves like a kid?

It's a simple matter of different writers. If the the premise of Young Sheldon is to be more of a Sitcom like older Sheldon, he would be off the walls bat crazy like his adult self. To me, Sheldon is ...
