Although he roughhoused with his brothers, he seemed very tolerant and kind to them. He could be very well-spoken at times, but when frustrated, had a hard time expressing himself. He would also backtalk and can be defiant.
Tammy and Shawn explained that Chandler's biggest problem was his attitude. Jo observed that Chandler smart-mouthed Tammy, like when they noticed a street cleaner coming down the street, Chandler told Tammy that he hoped it would get her wet.
As the oldest boy, Chandler often seemed to be standing to the side wondering when his parents would gain control of the younger boys. When Jo introduced the family routine and house rules, Chandler said that he thought they were good. When Caden refused to eat dinner, Chandler tried to help the situation by offering Caden two dollars if he ate (which Tammy promptly shut down).
He found homework very stressful and pent up his feelings about it. Encouraged by Jo, he explained that he preferred doing homework with Tammy because Shawn yelled at him in first grade about his work. He seemed very upset about having to admit this, but felt better after Shawn apologized for yelling in the past and reassured Chandler that he should always let him know when homework gets upsetting for him.
He was eight years old on the tape date. He is now 21 years old as of 2017, and will later become 22.
