Atticus prepares his family for repercussions from his defense of Tom Robinson.

Aunt Alexandra descends upon the family in order to lend a ladies touch..... a source of conflict.

Individual Identity -vs- Communal Tradition

Atticus's preservation of his own morals and Scout's preservation of her own idea of what it means to be a girl - suggest that though Atticus's fight for justice is very difficult and lonely, the process of growing up as a tomboy in the 1930s South could be equally painful and lonely at times, and certainly contributed to Scout's strong character development. Atticus clearly encouraged Scout to be her own kind of girl, both directly and through his personal approach to his own life.
