What about people who teach their children to lie? Example, "whispering in the background, tell them I'm not home." Or, teaching them to "lie" about everyday life situations. "We will just tell the teacher that you were sick." Or, when they watch you lie to other people. Isn't that teaching them to lie. Then, we wonder why they grow up stealing and telling lies.

Hey SQ, You're so right-I'm not a very efficient liar but I can lie by omission or tell a half truth & have done so in front of my son saying "that really wasn't a lie" I know it was wrong & he is now a very accomplished liar-he can lie to me & his dad w/ a straight face w/o even blinking.He's not a bad kid but I'm just saying his concience doesn't prevent him from from telling us lies even when he knows he's not gonna get in trouble just lying for the pure sake of it. +'s 2 U :D
