    it always depends
    if u lie to a child that santa is real then ur makin them feel good etc etc
    also if say u lie to ur parents about something, its okay coz if they knew the truth they might feel hurt and dissapointed in you
    lying in many circumstances is wrong but there are exceptions!

    It depends whether you consider lying in itself an "evil" act, or whether you reject lying (in principle), because in most cases it has negative consequences.

    So, basically it all comes down to a fundamental ethical question:

    Do we judge the moral value of an action by the nature of the action itself, or by its consequences?

    I think it's fine unless of course it's something major. People lie all the time when somebody asks if your alright even when your not you say yeah a majority of the time etc, it's too common to call wrong.

    Well since they have to know sometimes, why allow them to cling to their dillusion for longer, it is the same with the tooth fairy.
