As Jem grows older and begins to mature, he does not fear the gifts in the tree.  He sees the goodness in Boo's attempt to connect with Jem and Scout, but as the story goes on, he becomes more and more disillusioned.  His disillusionment is reflected when Nathan Radley cements the knothole and generally does what he can to p unish Boo and to treat him like a bad child.
