You can only beg and plead, but that moment you see the thumb twitch you shoot him in the head so he doesn't blow up and hurt or kill everyone around him. It's a split second decision that has to be made for the greater good. He obviously didn't want to kill as his emotion was all over his face before and after but he had to do it to save everyone not just the family.
tbh I sure bet the family were grateful
I can imagine a deleted scene where the Mum goes to Superman "took you long enough"
