Simply so, what new game does JEM invent?
In chapter four, Dill, Jem and Scout beginplayingthe new game that involves a drama of acting out thefamilylife of the Radleys. Jem becomes Boo Radley. Dill isold Mr.Radley, and Scout becomes Mrs. Radley.
One may also ask, why does JEM call scout a girl? Jem feels that Scout is behaving likea"girl" by complaining and protesting about traveling inthedirection of the Radley place. Scout, who isatomboy, takes offense to the nickname "Angel May" becausesheabsolutely despises anything feminine and wants to be viewed asoneof the guys.
Similarly, how is Jem changing?
Jem was physically changing, as heturned12 in chapter 12. Then in chapter 14, Jem "broketheremaining code of [their] childhood" by going to get AtticuswhenDill showed up under Scout's bed. He thinks more like an adultthanhe used to, and he's trying to act more like oneaswell.
Why does Atticus tell the kids that they shouldn't play the game?
Atticus tells the children not toplaythe Boo Radley game because what Mr. Radley didwas hisbusiness; if he wanted t0 come out, he would.Atticussaid to stop making fun of him, laughing at him, andputting hislife's history on display for the edification oftheneighborhood.
