  • it is a normal kid thing to do this. At this age kids don't want to disappoint you and they think if they tell the truth you might get mad. What I used to tell my kids is it is better to tell the truth than lie because if I catch you lying you will get in more trouble. So while my kids still lie sometimes it is not very often and they know they are going to get in a lot of trouble for lying.

    Good Luck!
