Bias -
The parents and their view of education, preferential treatment of a specific gender etc.
Materialism -
The mother only cares about her looks money and riches just like the father
- The parents neglect the importance of values in their family e.g father neglect the laws (driving, cheating etc.)
- The parents forget her age, the older brother, Michael barely knows arithmetic for someone his age, the mother cannot cook etc.

Later on, Matilda's family becomes the exact opposite of all these when Miss. Honey adopts her.
The socialization of children had its own major moral flaws especially with the agent of socialization that is present. The major location in this movie is the home. Therefore,
the family
is the major agent of socialization.

Socialization of Children in the Movie
Main Character
According to J. Omoro, the family is “The earliest and without question the most influential agent. It grabs the child at birth, when the child is most helpless and dependent, and doesn’t let go for a whole lifetime” (2014).
Her family does not perform their roles because they do not give her;
, the family does not have moral values and the child has to get her morals from books.

Her family also disrespect education. Therefore, they disregard her values as a young girl.
