I almost agree, but I also agree with...I believe it was Cecil....of the Cognitive Dissonance podcast who says its a good exercise in critical thinking practice for children.
I regularly lie to my young children. The eldest is almost 5 years old. When I tell her stuff she listens, thinks about it and decides for herself if it is truth, lies or needs further evaluation. If she thinks the later, then she also consults her mother.

When she is old enough, I will teach her how to use Google.
