Are children poor liars? Do you think you can easily detect their lies? Developmental researcher Kang Lee studies what happens physiologically to children when they lie. They do it a lot, starting as young as two years old, and they're actually really good at it. Lee explains why we should celebrate when kids start to lie and presents new lie-detection technology that could someday reveal our hidden emotions.

Little Liars: Insights from Children’s Lies | Kang Lee | TEDxUofT

Some children begin lying before they can even walk. Research has shown that toddlers start lying as early as age 2. But why? With more than 100 influential papers on the topic, Dr. Kang Lee is a world leading authority on children and lying. His work has contributed to reforms in Canadian law concerning the obtainment of evidence from children. Since 2005, child witnesses under 14 years of age in all criminal cases must undergo a procedure before they testify that is based on the work by his team.

Sick of Your Child Lying? This is How to Make it Stop.

Has your child been lying to you lately? If so, it might not be as big of a problem as you think.

In this episode of Mom Docs, Dr. Dehra Harris, a Pediatric Psychiatrist with Washington University at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, shares some insight on why children lie and what you can do about it.

If your child has been lying to you, it’s important to take the age of the child into consideration. In young children, lying marks the beginning of imagination, which is a normal developmental stage. Your child’s lying only becomes a problem when it’s part of a persistent pattern.

If your situation involves your child lying often, try these tactics:

Approach your child and, without getting emotional, present the information you know to be true. For example, if your child took money off the countertop, you can say, “There is money missing from the counter top. I need you to help me figure this out.”

This approach leaves room for two different outcomes:
#1. Your child lets you know what happened and they explain their story.
#2. You inform them that you know what happened and they do not admit they lied.

While both of these situations deserve a consequence, the second should be greater. Repeating this method when your child lies can help put the problem behind you.

The language of lying — Noah Zandan

View full lesson:

We hear anywhere from 10 to 200 lies a day. And although we’ve spent much of our history coming up with ways to detect these lies by tracking physiological changes in their tellers, these methods have proved unreliable. Is there a more direct approach? Noah Zandan uses some famous examples of lying to illustrate how we might use communications science to analyze the lies themselves.

What is the most effective way to deal with the situation in which your child is lying with no shame?

First of all, do not take it personally. Most children aged 3 to 9 tell lies occasionally. And, in general, parents go through the same feelings you are experiencing. Not only that, but I often feel like I have failed in my attempts to educate him properly and the result is that I end up exaggerating my own reaction. Keep in mind that at 3 years of age, although they may not be telling the truth, a child doesn’t lie in the same way we understand it as adults.
Moreover, it is important to keep your temper in check and identify the cause of the lying correctly. Is he afraid? Is it a form of creativity and perhaps he can’t tell the difference between real and imaginary? Is it a form of testing his power and autonomy? Is he just trying to attract attention? Is it an accident or a habit?
From the moment you become aware of the lie, behave in such a way as to create an atmosphere of trust which will encourage him to tell the truth. Keep in mind that after the deed is done, screaming at your child does not bring the broken mug back to its original state, nor does it automatically clean the bed which was wet overnight and was later hidden in the closet. If the lie was related to an act that made things dirty, unorganized, or broken into pieces, yelling does neither not turn the cleaning process into a playful moment. Of course, it is true that you don’t have to create an atmosphere of fear, but neither should you replace your disapproval by giving them a reward.
You should also avoid putting him down in private, but even more so in public. The reality is that humiliation is a very strong emotion, but it is highly ineffective to teach him a lesson. Instead, remind him that you trust him to be able to keep his word, and when he does, affirm reward him, not with objects, but with positive words.
After the age of 5 or 6, your child is better able to think and make decisions. You could then present him with some situations, not necessarily having to do with major implications, but situations in which he himself could experience what it feels like when others are not trustworthy, where he can perhaps even feel the sadness one feels when someone lies to them.

Because you want your child to grow up to be an upright and trustworthy person, keep in mind that the first time he lies he’s not doing it deliberately, but rather because he doesn’t know a better way to get out of a difficult situation. It is up to you to create that trusting relationship and to make him feel at ease to come and tell you the conflicting ideas” that cross his mind and to ask for your advice. Your parental responsibility is not to be the master of all your child's decisions. You are there to teach them the importance of honesty and the consequences of choosing to tell a lie.

Make him accountable by agreeing together on the consequences. Take into account the gravity of the falsehood and how much time passed from the time they lied until they admitted to what happened. Be realistic and very consistent in applying the consequences you two agreed on. Empty threats will only teach your child that you don’t mean what you say and they will continue to test you in the future.

You are on the same team, so validate him for telling you the truth and take the time to talk to him. Help him to learn from his own mistakes by finding a way to overcome the problems together.

For, in the end, this is your responsibility and your efforts will be rewarded!
