If your seven-year-old lies to you about anything and everything even when he's caught how do you know if he needs intervention or if he's just going through a phase?

Young children often have a hard time dealing with guilt, and might lie even when caught in order to avoid guilty feelings. This is a phase many children will go through, until their minds develop and the lessons you teach sink in. If your child continues constantly lying well into their pre-teen years, you should undergo counseling and testing to find the cause of this habit.
