Depends on the child and the situation. Of you live an average life maybe. But in my house, I lie about my DH all the time. I have a very high anxiety child and I would never be truthful about his dads job/safety until he was old enough to understand the biggest picture possible. So maybe some people could be 'lie' free. But I
Lie to protect my son. Now, my other son, he is a different kid. I could word things differently and not 'lie' but maybe coat things nicely. But my oldest??? He NEEDS the cloak. IMO.
