However, Walter is too poor to pay back Miss Caroline, while Miss Caroline does not understand, Scout explains the Cunningham’s situation but is disciplined anyway. Jem later invites Walter for supper after getting beaten up by Scout. At the supper table Walter pours molasses all over his food, Scout is surprised and is taken in the kitchen where she was lectured by Calpurnia. Scout learns from Cal that since Walter is her guest then she should respect him and anybody who sets foot in the Finches house, no matter what their social class, (Lee 33). This lesson from Calpurnia taught Scout to have manners for people and to treat most people like they are not better nor worse than
The girl seems pretty upset about this, because Dad “tries” to clean up. In addition, the daughter finds a fork in the road that she finds questioning. Towards the end of the passage, when Dad went to find the vocabulary book, the daughter thought, “Why should I eat when my own father has abandoned his own food?

When Scout tries to chase Walter away, Jem invites him over for dinner. Walter pours an unusual amount of molasses on his food, and Scout calls him out on it. Because of her actions, Calpurnia drags Scout into the kitchen and tells her that it “[d]on’t matter who they are, anybody [who] sets foot in [her] house’s [her] comp[a]ny” (Lee 18). Although Calpurnia scolded Scout aggressively, she does it to help Scout perceive another’s situation.

Edna disagrees with society prohibiting women’s freedom, so she rebels and rejects the judgement of others. When Edna learns of Robert’s planned departure for Mexico she becomes irritable and refuses to socialize with others, although society expects her to do so. Adele fruitlessly attempts to draw Edna back to her place in society. “‘Are you not coming down? Come on, dear; it doesn’t look friendly.’ ‘No,’ said Edna” (Chopin 42).
Calpurnia is one of the characters that teaches Scout not to judge and to tolerate and respect the actions of others. Scout gets in trouble with Calpurnia, when she embarrasses Walter Cunningham by pointing out his eating habits at dinner; Walter poured syrup on his vegetables and meat with a generous hand. Scout says “ he’s gone and drowned his dinner in syrup, He’s poured it all over-” (Lee 32). Calpurnia calls Scout into the kitchen and says furiously “ There’s some folks that don’t eat like us, but you ain’t called on to contradict ‘em at the table when they don’t. That boy’s yo’ comp’ny and if he wants to eat up the tablecloth you let him, you hear”(33).
At the beginning of the book, Scout wants to pick a fight at the slightest aggravation and is high tempered. One example is when she beats up Walter Cunningham for not having his lunch and getting her in trouble in class. She rubbed his nose in the dirt, but Jem came by and told her to stop. Atticus then told Scout that if he heard she was fighting, he would wear her out. Throughout the book, Scout fights less and less because she realizes it does her no good.
She was a part of the faction that prevented Thomas Putnam’s brother from becoming the minister of the town. The Putnam’s are very upset about this and Mrs. Putnam also accuses Rebecca of murder. Rebecca is also upset at Reverend Parris because he refuses to preach to the children, even though they seem to be possessed by the devil. She also doesn’t support Parris’ idea to bring Reverend Hale to Salem to help with the witchcraft because she believes that it will send the whole town into arguments and thinking that something is seriously wrong. She believes it would be better to just pray and let the doctor try and save Betty.
When Scout embarrasses Walter for pouring syrup all over his food, Calpurnia punishes Scout for the disrespectful way she treated Walter. By doing this, Calpurnia ignored the social class order for she believes that ‘guests no matter who they are must be treated well’. On the other hand, when Scout wants to invite Walter Cunningham over a second time under Aunt Alexandra’s supervision, Aunt Alexandra makes it very clear that it would be an inappropriate invitation because according to the social order of Maycomb, ‘he is trash’. By Calpurnia allowing Walter to visit and Aunt Alexandra forbidding Walter to visit, the social prejudice system is made obvious. Calpurnia also allows Scout to wear overalls whereas Aunt Alexandra encourages Scout to wear dresses as it is more ladylike.
There at the Finch 's landing for a christmas. They were their for dinner. Aunt Alexandra was the one who cooked dinner.
