Children are learning what the world is about. They'll always press the limits, and to them there is no such thing as a lie, it's just about making the adults happy. They BELIEVE a lot of the stuff they say, and the things that they DON'T believe, they're just trying to "get along". The responsibility of the adult is to teach the children how to survive in the world. Morality is difficult to teach, especially when children watch the television and hear political leaders equivocate by redefining the meaning of "I did not have sex with that woman." As a society, we're moving away from traditional moral values, partially because of the lessons that are taught by Hollywood, Video Games and the media, and partially by what they are taught when they read the news.
