According to an ethics survey by the Josephson Institute, 23 percent admit stealing from their parents and 28 percent have pilfered something from a store in the last year.
Even worse: 60 percent of them have cheated on a test in the last 12 months and 35 percent admitting doing it two or more times.
But here are the most chilling cheating statistics: 92 percent of teens are satisfied with their personal ethics and 74 percent believe that when it comes to doing what is right, they are better than most.
By the way, 27 percent of the teens who responded to the survey admit they lied on at least two of the questions.
