When truth dawns upon him, he feels terrible and intensifies his acts of building fences around himself because he never gives his family a chance of knowing and understanding him. This trait is revealed when his son Cory confronts him and tells him how he has been a terrible father and how he destroyed his dreams in the fear of his son being more successful than him.
