Aunt Alexandra arrives in Maycomb to help out with the children because Atticus's involvement in Tom Robinson's trial will keep him away from home working long hours. It's interesting to note the contrast in Aunt Alexandra's expectations of Scout compared with Atticus's expectations.

Aunt Alexandra comes to live in maycomb to live with her brother Atticus Finch. She wants Scout to have a mom or female figure in her life. Aunt Alexandra thinks that scout is too much of a Tomboy.
