The children learn right from wrong through many events in the novel but Calpurnia teaches them the best one of all love. She has taken care of them since they were babies and when they go out she makes sure they’re nice looking so no one assumes something different. She says “I don’t want anybody sayin’ I don’t look after my children (118)”. She doesn’t take anything from anybody when she brings them to church especially when Lula makes a comment about it. When the children bring Walter home from school to eat lunch she teaches scout how to treat her company. She says “Hush your mouth! Don’t matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house’s yo’ comp’ny, and don’t you let me catch you remarkin’ on their ways like you was so high and mighty! Yo’ folks might be better’n the Cunninghams but it don’t count for nothin’ the way you’re disgracing’ ‘em—
if you can’t act fit to eat at the table you can just set here and eat in the kitchen!(24-25)” she showed no matter how much better you are then others you teach them with respect and that she loves everyone. Scout refers to Cal on she rarely comments on the way of white people when Mr. Radley dies which shows she doesn’t make rude comments because she’s not like that. Atticus refers to her as a faithful member of the family when Aunt Alexandra says they don’t need her anymore. He also says that she’s been harder on them then a mother would’ve been in the first place and never lets them get away with anything.
