Children's Categorization and Evaluation of Different Types of Lies and Truths.
Bussey, Kay
Child Development, v70 n6 p1338-47 Nov-Dec 1999
Investigated 4-, 8-, and 11-year-olds' ability to categorize intentionally false and true statements as lies and truths. Found that older children were more likely to categorize false statements as lies and true statements as truths than were 4-year-olds. Antisocial lies were rated as most serious, and "white lies" as least serious. Anticipated regulatory control was related to age. (Author/KB)
