Although I'm not a psychologist, I'd opine that the vast majority of kids are inherently honest but too often are taught (generally by adults who have some stake, no matter how trivial or misguided, in the kid's activity, eg tennis) to be dishonest. The result is the same: a kid who misses the whole point of playing a sport.
