For fear of losing the reputation he has worked hard to build up, Baba withholds his own sin. He has to learn how to parent on his own without any guidance, so he raises Amir to be the man he wishes he had been, discussing topics like sin, so Amir does not grow to be a sinner as well.

Spending time with Amir would only remind Baba of the sin he committed after his wife’s death, so he distances himself.
