Lying is all around us; it never stops, every few minutes another lie is being said. It can either benefit everyone, or it can turn out for the worse. Lying is easily influenced among adolescents, as children, parents have always taught their kids that lying is a horrible habit and should not be encouraged, As the children grow up, they learn from everyone around them, and can't help but start to lie, making lying no longer a bad habit because they witness the lies that are coming out of everyone's mouth.

Parents look out for the well being in their children, when kids disobey their parents, naturally they try to come up with something so that their punishment will be eased upon them, if they passed their curfew time and parents found out, the lie would be, "Sorry I was on my way but we ran into some delays." After saying your excuse, parents keep asking questions, and all you keep coming up with is lies for answers. Police look out for the good in everyone, stopping anyone that does not abide by the law. Whether a cop stops you for speeding where you can't or even looking suspicious.

Teachers and Bosses are the worst of them, they have the most power out of all of them, and they have the power to make you stay after class, redo work that was not done right, and stay there until it is done correctly. Lying to your boss can show up and affect your yearly
