I think there are quite a few examples later in the novel of Scout gaining self-control. Check out this out,

In this quote Scout shows how much self-control she has gained over the novel. “Don’t you want to grow up to be a lawyer? Miss Maudie’s hand touched mine I answered mildly enough, Nome just a lady. Miss Stephanie’s said well you won’t get very far if you don’t start wearing a dress more often.”( Lee, pg. 230) You realize here how much Scout has matured, and how much self- control she has gained. She tolerates the ladies laughing at her, making snotty comments and asking rude questions without getting mad or even showing her anger the least bit. Scout also learned the lesson of equality.
