Most teens lie to their parents because they are afraid of them. Some parents go overboard when they hear their teen child did something bad. If parents would actually take the time to listen to the child and understand in their perspective maybe teens won't lie that much.

Well, teenagers with kids think so. And uh, that's about it.

They shouldn't. Or, rather, they should if the teenagers are trustworthy, but not if they're not, and odds are pretty good they're not.

Maybe because they are growing up and they get bad influences from adults or other teens
