Expert Answers

An interesting question. I'm not that he does, or if he does, that Scout tells us. Instead, I'd say that Mr. Radley objects to the back and forth interaction between Boo and the children. He doesn't like people sneaking onto the property (at night), and doesn't want Boo drawn out from where he thinks it is safe, and disrupting the back and forth should cut down on both.
