Jem is growing up, and even though he isn't fond of Aunt Alexandria he does not want to see drama. Also, Aunt Alexandria often lectures Atticus about how Scout should act. Jem is probably trying to protect his father.
Jem is gradually comprehending maturity as he steps into adolescence. He is gaining the emotional capacity to appreciate the domestic compliance Aunt Alexandra impels into the family and instead of being unappreciative, Jem starts to look into Auntie's tendencies to do good to the family.
