She wants his book to stop the reoccurring cycle of men getting sent to war who are still innocent boys. She understands as a husband of a war veteran and as a mother of boys that war is a terrible part of society. The narrator even tells his sons in the novel not to get involved in “massacres” and that the hearing of massacres of people should never “fill them with satisfaction or glee” (24). Because the narrator has been through war and seen its atrocities, he does not want his sons ever to participate in the killing of people Using Mrs. O’Hare, the narrator’s sons and others;
Finally, another similarity is that Salinger was involved in World War 2 and was sent home because he suffered from combat stress reaction, while Holden says he wouldn't be able to stand going into war and would rather die by sitting on the atom bomb (183). This part of, "The Catcher in the Rye," shows Salinger's dislike of his service time in the war. It seems Salinger hated being in the army not because he had to shoot and kill people, but because of what kind of people in the army he had to be surrounded by. Salinger also mentions death frequently throughout the book. But there is one part in particular where you can feel Salingers emotions towards death.
Never told that the mirror, like shooting walnuts at the neighbour’s dog, was always my idea." "If I hadn't seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d never believe he's my son." *Baba is somehow ashamed to have Amir as a son, he's sceptical because they are so different and Amir is like his opposite in so many ways. "You are right, Agha. But perhaps you didn't notice that I’m the one holding the slingshots."
He is very distant even from his family, his grandchildren don't like to visit him and they misbehave during the funeral. Walt also judges them without having into account that they are little kids and teenagers, he dislikes the way they dress and their attitudes. As for Walt's sons, my impression is that he feels like they are trying to send him to the old people's house to get rid of him and take over his belongings, the house and his beautiful car, the Gran Torino. Another issue that Walt has to face after the funeral is that Father Janovich is tries to talk with him in order to get him to confession, because he had promised Walt's wife he would do so after her passing away. This is very difficult to Walt because a younger man is talking him about life, being that he has had strong and near experiences with death, so Walt stereotypes him as a young virgin speaking things learned at school, but that the Father didn't even understand according to him.

His children particularly Mayella, have been affected by this lack of empathy, and have developed it as well. After Bob had just saved Scout and Jem's lives, Atticus and Mr. Heck Tate were talking about Mr. Ewell. "He has guts enough to pester a poor coloured woman, he had guts enough to pester Judge Taylor when he thought the house was empty, so do you think he'd met your face in daylight?" (Page 269) - Mr. Heck Tate (on why Bob Ewell went after Scout and Jem). This quote shows how Bob Ewell has no empathy skills whatsoever.
In essence, his parenting style is to ignore his children unless he wants to abuse them. The parent in To Kill A Mockingbird that most closely resembles the parents we’d see today is Walter Cunningham. Cunningham is a hard working, poor farmer. He’s taught his children about hard work and seems loving, but there is an incident where he leads a mob to lynch Tom Robinson at the jailhouse. He’s eventually convinced by Scout to not lynch Robinson, because Cunningham has a responsibility to his children.
