Often parents instruct children not to lie, but now the situation is changing. A recent study revealed that parents like to hear what they want from their children. Sometimes parents behave strictly when they tell the truth. In this situation, seeing their parents, children learn to tell lies by twisting them so that their parents like them.

Children get rewarded for lying
They get rewarded for telling such lies in a roundabout way. For example, someone asks where are your parents. To this, the truthful child will answer that they are under the porch, but the lying and twisting child will say that they have gone to the library.

He will not tell that the library is under the porch of the house. Lying is an important step in a child's emotional development, indicating theory of mind or the ability to understand that other people have different thoughts, wants, or needs.

The risk of punishment is reduced by twisting the truth
Children can understand the discrepancy. Most children are not explicitly taught to lie, but their parents' reactions can teach them that there is little risk in twisting the truth.
