Jem is getting older now. He really doesn't want to be seen with his little sister. It's just not cool having a first grader hanging out with a big fifth grader. Jem tells Scout that during school hours she can't go to him so that they can play together, say anything about his private life to anyone and not to make contact with him during recess and lunch. At home, all the rules would be lifted of course.
