You model telling the truth. Don't set him up in situations for him to lie. If you are always with your 4 yo and always supervising them there isn't a lot that could come up that they could lie about. You know everything that is going on & you don't have to ask them anything.

Kids are going to lie, you just need to tell him why it's not OK to lie and give him some consequences when you do catch him in a lie.

Not sure what your religous beliefs are but I really like the Veggie Tale series. They have one called Larry Boy and the Fib from outer space.- http://www.epinions.com/reviews/mvie_mu-1084186

I flat out told my kids that if they lie and get caught the punishment is twice (or more) as bad!!! I've had to make good on that a few times, but It seems to work pretty good now!! They are 4 & 6. (When I say punishment I mean stuff like longer timeouts, taking away more toys and privileges then the infraction would warrant, stuff like that)
