This. People don't have a problem with the truth, if starting from the start and young. It's only as we get older (even from a young age), that all the social "lies" get in the way (of the reality/functional/engineering/maths, the social side is fine and great and needed, but should not change facts or math!).
Like most languages, it's harder to "unlearn" the errors and mistakes, than learn new and afresh to begin with. Or programming, if starting early, compared to having to learn it much much later on.
