Although Aunt Alexandra does come across as insensitive and harsh, she does truly care about Scout; however, Scout does not really realize how her aunt feels until nearly the end of the story. Aunt Alexandra often seems to be overly concerned with Scout's lack of ladylike qualities and makes her opinions known to all of those who will listen. Eventually, though, Aunt Alexandra's actions and words do reveal her love for her brother and his children.

he feels like Scout should be wearing a dress or a skirt instead of pants. In other words she wants her to be a girly girl not a tomboy. She then tries to force her ways onto her
