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.

Thanks for reminding us to behave ourselves, those people need to be told that they really are spoiling the life of our kids. Thanks once again.

We all need to be reminded of our moral responsibility to our children. Some of us need to be reminded repeatedly.

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

I've watched two year old be deceitful. Lie. I am not sure if their conscience bothers them or not, but some of them are quite good, even at that age.
