Children and their perceptions of lying
CHILDREN AND THEIR PERCEPTIONS OF LYING

  • 92% OF FIVE YEAR OLDS SAY IT IS ALWAYS WRONG TO LIE

  • 28% OF TEN YEAR OLDS SAY IT IS ALWAYS WRONG TO LIE



Children s developmental deception skills
CHILDREN’S DEVELOPMENTAL DECEPTION SKILLS WERE LYING

  • EARLY PERIOD (APPROX. 2-6 YRS)

    • VERBAL FANTASY, PRETENSE PLAY, “THINGS YOU AREN’T SUPPOSED TO SAY LIKE “DIRTY” WORDS, ERRORS/MISTAKES

    • TRUTH BELIEVED TO MATCH REALITY WHILE LIES DON’T

    • LIE TO AVOID PUNISHMENT; NOT TO MISLEAD

    • HAVE LITTLE SENSE OF OTHER’S PERSPECTIVE


  • MIDDLE CHILDHOOD (APPROX. 5-9 YRS) WERE LYING

    • SOME ATTEMPTS TO MANIPULATE BELIEFS, BUT COMMONLY ACT AS IF TARGET WILL SIMPLY ACCEPT THEIR MANIPULATION

    • OFTEN LACK UNDERSTANDING THAT TARGET MAY BE TRYING TO DETECT THEIR DECEPTION AND MAY EVEN TRY TO DECEIVE THEM


  • LATER CHILDHOOD (APPROX. 7-12 YRS) WERE LYING

    • MORE CONVINCING LIARS

    • CAN MANIPULATE TARGET’S BELIEF ABOUT THEIR INTENTIONS--REALIZING TARGET IS TRYING TO PERCEIVE THEIR MOTIVES





Why do children lie
WHY DO CHILDREN LIE? NEED TO BE EFFECTIVE ARE DEVELOPED. THESE SKILLS ARE:

  • THEY LIE WHEN THE MOTIVATIONAL STRUCTURE IS TILTED TOWARD THE NEED TO LIE--JUST LIKE ADULTS DO

    • YOUNG CHILDREN LIE TO AVOID PUNISHMENT

    • LATER THEY LIE TO GET REWARDS (E.G., CANDY)
