5 What does research say? Motivation Boys dont value pleasing adults but rather raising their status in the sight of other boys. (Sax 25) Communication and Relationships For males, conversation is the way you negotiate your status in the group and keep people from pushing you around… Activities, doing things together, are central. Just sitting and talking is not an essential part of friendship. They're friends with the boys they do things with" (Tannen 95)
