Jem and Scout had always been friends, but once Jem began to mature he had different expectations of Scout as her "big" brother rather than playmate. He distanced himself from her and consistantly reminded her that it was time to "start bein" a girl. This upset Scout because she had no idea why he'd changed towards her.
