This is really only an issue at the beginning of the novel. Her ghost stories about Boo Radley and the games she, and the others, play on him show a lack of maturity. Scout also resorts to violence when frustrated by a classmate. I would be careful about calling this "superficial". Scout is still a child and the reason she develops into the character we love so much is partly because of her earlier traits. People don't grow up in a vacuum. Maturity is a result of being a child as well.
