5.1.1. "Atticus and Jem were well ahead of us, and I assumed that Atticus was giving him hell for not going home, but I was wrong. As they passed under a streetlight, Atticus reached out and massaged Jem’s hair, his one gesture of affection." Scout, chapter 15, page 169 The night that Jem sneaks out because he is worried about his father, Scout thinks that Jem would get into trouble for not obeying Atticus, but it is quite the opposite. This passage shows that Atticus thinks Jem is brave and courageous for refusing to leave and stay when his father was in danger.

5.2. mature

5.2.1. "Jem was certainly never cruel to animals, but I had never known his charity to embrace the insect world. "Why couldn't I mash him?" I asked. "Because they don't bother you," Jem answered in the darkness. He had turned out his reading light." Scout and Jem, chapter 25, page 259 Late in the novel, this passage surounds how Jem has grown and matured, and his values frequently contrast with Scout's.

Jem and Reverend Sykes, chapter 21, page 227 Jem is hopeful in an optimistic point of view by that the jury may not go on his side and hard to convince the jury to change their view on the case. but Jem's optimism makes him not give up so easily and hopping that people would make the right choice by truth not my where they are on the rank.

6.3. respect

6.3.1. "While he let .... score for the baptists" Jem feels a lack of respect from his peers in that Atticus does not play football. However, all is forgotten when Atticus is called upon to kill Tim Johnson, when the children learn that Atticus is a "marksman
