    Scrooge's opinion of family values was distorted by his treatment as a child. Seemingly shunned by his father, and cared about only by his sister, he could not have been expected to see it in a happy light. This misery was compounded by the fact that his beloved sister died in childbirth, which also gave Scrooge another reason to avoid his nephew, as his sister died giving birth to said nephew. His formative years moulded the cynical, uncaring, non-sharing old man that he became.
