USAToday - Casey Anthony "very comfortable with lying"


Victoria Talwar, an associate professor of developmental psychology at McGill and an expert on lying behaviour in children, comments for USAToday on the Casey Anthony case. She says kids learn from their parents, who may model it as a strategy to get along in life: "It's an acceptable means of getting what you want." She says particularly intelligent kids who understand the nuances of lying may be more prone to lie.
