Learning to Lie

Kids lie early, often, and for all sorts of reasons—to avoid punishment, to bond with friends, to gain a sense of control. But now there’s a singular theory for one way this habit develops: They are just copying their parents.

Very interesting article. I’m not putting any of my own support behind it (i.e. don’t blame me for what it says), but it is interesting.
