The paper, therefore, examines the significant sociological concepts and the importance of the video to the researcher in enhancing an understanding of socialization within the societies of today.
The first idea that a viewer realizes upon watching the movie relates to the attribute that portrays girls to read earlier than boys while also acquiring verbal knowledge at earlier age than males. While the society may tend to describe the boy child as talented academically over the girls, that believe is just a misconception. After interviewing various elementary school boys regarding their best subjects in school, the response included gym, recess, among others (Thompson, 2009). As opposed to answering the right subjects covered in schools, the boys focus on other activities outside the school curriculum making them lag behind in catching up with the girls. It is also evident that difficulties in concentration makes majority of young boys receive punishments while at school. The second concept realized in the movie relates to the need to master some skill across all men. With athletic ability taking the first line of competencies that every boy intends to achieve in the future, failure to attain the goal leads to searching for other talents like music to ensure the gap is filled. The evidence to the development of a skill is evidenced by the 80% of males at Bronx, who work hard to become talented and eventually end up being NBA players. NBA has remained a predominant sport in the U.S for decades prompting the boys to believe in the sporting activity as better off compared to academic excellence.

To support the concept, the boys stemming from all boys’ school attribute increased confidence
