In Ch. 13, Aunt Alexandra begins seriously interfering with Scout's way of life. She wants Scout to be polite and proper and ladylike. Alexandra impresses her beliefs on Atticus, who isn't entirely comfortable with them. He tells Scout and Jem that they need to be polite, gentlemanly and ladylike. Scout is offended by the way Atticus talks, but he says that he doesn't expect her to remember any of it. He returns to being the kind father Scout knows and she is comforted.
