As an adult, they read his texts and interfered in his relationship with his girlfriend. Still at home in 2024, his younger sister, Emma, a teen, was instructed to act like a human alarm clock and make sure he got up for work and tidied his room.

On Reddit, 7 Little Johnstons fans discussed how Trent and Amber’s son found himself in trouble in the current season on TLC. He ran his car low on gas but neglected to fill it up. Instead, when it was almost empty, he tried his card but ran into a problem with bank fraud issues. So, he called his mom and dad for help.

Speaking about how Jonah Johnston seems challenged when making rational decisions, the OP said:

He sells cars for a living but calls his parents when he’s not even completely out of gas yet? He calls them and says he doesn’t have enough gas to make it home….you should know about how much you have once the light comes on – just make sure you don’t run out? Like it’s not a total surprise…Just another way they’ve crippled him as an adult.

In the comments, TLC fans expressed their thoughts about the young adult struggling. Here are some of their comments:

  • I’ve just started watching this show but it seems like Jonah can’t adult to save his life. His younger sister needs to be the one to wake him up in the mornings and he can’t problem solve straightforward situations. On top of all of it, he comes across as mean and arrogant to the rest of the siblings.
  • Do folks not carry an emergency $20 with them any more?

Not everyone condemned Trent, Amber, or their son, and one of them pointed out that he seems to have some genuine problems.

What are your thoughts about Jonah Johnston who some fans think seems a bit disadvantaged when it comes to adulting? Do you agree that he should, by now, have learned always to keep some cash notes in the car for emergencies? Shout out in the comments below, and come back here for all your 7 Little Johnstons news.
