Do as Atticus says and put yourself in Boo's skin and walk around for a bit. If you were just trying to live a quiet life away from people and rumors and questions, and a group of kids insisted on turning your house and life into a game, would you feel tormented? Think of the number of times in the novel that Scout, Jem and Dill have concocted some notion to learn about the "real" Boo - not very conducive to leading a quiet life.
