Aunt Alexandra holds the opinion that Atticus gives his children the freedom to do what they wish. She worries that Scout isn't brought up as a polite southern girl. Scout wears overalls and is pretty much a tomboy. She is not submisive and, much like her father, stands up when she feels an injustice has taken place. In Chapter 9 Scout further adds to Aunt Alexandra's worries by belting Francis (Aunt's grandson)for calling Atticus a "nigger lover".
