Chandler Belfort’s early Life
As per the facts shown and stated in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Chandler had a traumatic childhood. Understandably, a child is likely to undergo a lot of trauma in a household if any of the parents were to be a drug addict and abusive.
Chandler was around 4-5 years old when she saw her parents arguing over petty things. A life so lavish from the outside could not give emotional security to a child.
A small yet crucial part of her childhood comprised the toxic relationship of her parents. This part of Chandler’s life was also depicted in the movie, The Wolf of Wall Street.
According to the movie, one night, after a terrible fight between Chandler’s parents, her mother warned her father about leaving him and taking the children away.
