Jem stayed moody and silent for a week. As Atticus had once advised me to do, I tried to climb into Jem’s skin and walk around in it: if I had gone alone to the Radley Place at two in the morning, my funeral would have been held the next afternoon. So I left Jem alone and tried not to bother him.

To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 7. When Scout notices a change in Jem’s mood, she uses her father’s advice to resolve conflict. Instead of jumping in headlong, she holds back and tries to understand how it would have felt to go into the Radleys’ yard in the early hours alone. She shows growing maturity here.
