Young children’s emerging ability to make false statements

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examined the origins of children’s lying ability. 2- to 5- year olds were rewarded for making false claims. Even the youngest children performed well on desire-based questions that did not refer directly to the truth (“do you win/lose?”), whereas children by 3 ½ to 4 years of age were able to maintain false claims across question types (recognition and recall). Children were faster at providing false responses than true responses to desire-based questions, but slower at providing false responses than true responses to recognition/recall questions. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that children’s first lies are statements consistent with their desires.
