Overview

Parents should be concerned when a child consciously and frequently misrepresents the truth. The lying behavior may be a “cry for help,” an inappropriate reaction to family or social problems or, when accompanied by other symptoms, a sign of psychological disturbance. Mental health professionals disagree on the cause(s) of lying in childhood. Some believe lying is unconscious, that children – especially very young children – are not fully aware that they are lying. Others believe lying is a symptom of a poor parent/child relationship. Mental health professionals generally do agree, however, that frequent lying is a cause for serious concern and that the psychological, social and moral development of the child may be at risk.

This brief epub provides "need to know" information designed for parents to understand and resolve lying in childhood.
