Miss Maudie says to Scout, “There’s things that happen to people we never really know. What happens in houses behind closed doors, what secrets – ”.

Some people believe that if you know about something wrong going on “behind closed doors,” within someone else’s family, you should try to intervene to stop it or improve the situation – especially when there are children or vulnerable individuals involved.

Others believe that (whether they do good or bad) adults have a right to do what they please with their own families within their own homes and that it is not an outsider’s place to interfere.
