Uncle Jack doesn't really understand the way chidren work or react because he's never had any of his own. He expects children to do what they're told straight off and doesn't listen to arguments or explanations. Atticus is open and willing to listen, Uncle Jack is not. Aunt Alexandra isn't a very good listener either, but she demands the children listen to her and do as their told.
