Is it possible for a man who lies constantly to everyone he encounters to be safe for a 4 year old boy to have a relationship with?

Depends on what type of relationship. Is he the child's father,

and if so, does he have legal parental rights? The fact is, we all

lie to every person we will ever encounter (to a greater or lesser

degree)because no human is perfect, but then it becomes a problem

when one considers what is being lied about and why. To tell

someone that you earn six-figures a year when you don't to rope

them into a risky investment scheme...well, you get the point. The

questions to consider is whether or not the child's psychological

well-being will be affected by this person's lying, as well as the

child's physical health. If YOU stand to suffer negative physical

and emotional effects, then so will the child, most definitely.
