The condition is completely reversible.’ ‘Of course,’ I said.”(Kingsolver, 166).

The term “tiger mom” was first used by Yale professor Amy Chua in Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother in 2011 (Chua, 2011). Since then, the term has been used in further studies and has become popular culture.

She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
As she states, “The thing is, you can scrub Walter Cunningham till his shoe shines, you can put him in shoes and a new suit but he’ll never be like Jem.” Alexandra thinks of Walter as low class and how he'll never rise up to the stance to be like Jem, who is richer and civilized. Aunt Alexandra states further how “Finch women aren't interested in those kind of people,” mainly referring to the Cunninghams. She forbids Scout from being friends with Walter because he is of lower class and shouldn't associate with trashy folks. She even tells Atticus to fire Cal, the housemaid and mainly not because of race, but because she is uncivilized and if she is around the Finches, then they themselves would become uncivilized if one were to be amongst
