We are just human I know..but the thing I hate most about being human is cheating..the time we learn to cheat..from small things to big ones.They say like lying ..cheating is also addictive.What could be the motivation that drive people to cheat???

I think cheating starts at a very young age, at home and at school, children who see that they can get away while still young or see adults and other members of the family do it and dismiss it as okay, might and I said might grow up to be cheaters later in life because wrong values were imparted to them at a very young age.

Not enough kids these days get spanked. That is where it all begins. Nobody really cares about a timeout, if that's all the punishment you get when your young then your not going to fear the consequences of your actions as an adult.

I agree..family and how you rear your children are things that mold the whole of a child.Family members should be the role models and not the teachers of bad behaviors. Gameslayer007* very true..no matter how hard you spanked kids they don't get straightened out because they got hurt.Punishment with talk is something.have a great day to you..

Some people do become compulsive liars and cheaters and if it isnt recognised and dealt with correctly they see no harm in it and the behavior continues.

It's too bad for these people, to never know what love is.

its hard to control these behaviors..if one is having trouble then they should seek help..its hard to admit when you have it.My friend's sister happens to lie a lot and the father always beats her sister because they only get to know they're lying in the end when the trouble is done.I think liars and cheaters should get help from families as one step.

Why do people cheat? The answer would be the same as for the question why we commit sins? We are only humans, imperfect, have weaknesses and shortcomings. And in this world full of temptations and trials, we tend to do something against our will. We can't be as strong as possible all the time. There are circumstances whereas faith and love are not on our side, not strong enough to control the urge.

great day lance26..You have a point.We are weak as humans and there are times we are tempted to cheat at times but we should not tolerate this as a habit.No matter how tough a situation is there is a way to resolve things not resorting to cheating instead.

Nobody like cheating persons. I don't know why they cheat too. But I know that there are some people who cheat to improve their benefits without to think about other persons. So, they cheat!

Some people want to see how far they can go. There are some people that don't understand happiness and therefore will never have it. I don't understand how people that have everything can want more more more. If more people didn't feel like they deserve something for nothing than they would appreciate what they have and wouldn't need something that isn't theirs.

hi, sometimes i do cheating because i am afraid to someone,like to my father, i was lying to him because i was afraid when he know it, even in my previous work, i lied, because i was afraid to my boss. so that i therefore conclude that being afraid is the cause why i cheat to others.
