Holden comes from a middle class American family in the 1950s where parents often worked exceptionally hard to earn money for the family in order to send children to high school and good colleges. The lack of care and comfort from his parents could be a reason why Holden fails to fit in with society as he has not been exposed to a warm and loving family life during childhood.
