Atticus tells the children to stop tormenting Boo, and lectures them about how Boo has a right to his privacy, and that they shouldn't go near the house unless they're invited. He accuses them of putting Boo's life history on display for the edification of the neighborhood. His advice is sound and much needed. No one should torment or put another person on display.
