    Primary source textual evidence # 2:“Don’t be silly, Jean Louise, ‘’ said Aunt Alexandra. ‘’The thing is, you can scrub Walter Cunningham till he shines, you can put him in shoes and a new suit, but he’ll never be like Jem. Besides, there’s a drinking streak in that family a mile wide. Finch women aren’t interested in that sort of people.”(Lee, 248).

    had thoughts like these before Aunt Alexandra came (Lee 178). For this reason, it is clear that she has been trying to mold Jem, Scout, and Atticus into this perfect family that is nothing like they used to be before she came. Mothers want the best for their family, but they accept who they are; they will not try to change their family as Alexandra has so desperately been trying to do.
