1) Yes I have. Whenever I'm around kids they seem to want to tell the truth, yet a know a lot of older people who lie because "it's fun" (why...?).

2) Dr. Lots-o'watts: that was hilarious : P

If children are rewarded for telling the truth when they say something their parents want to hear and punished for telling the truth when they say something their parents do not favor - what other conclusion might they reach than say what (they think) parents favor to receive a reward?
