We lie on a daily basis. But how bad is that?

In July 2022, I was interviewed in the daily local talkshow Rijnmond Vandaag about lying. Is it bad to lie to others, and is it even possible to always be honest? Many parents also struggle with this question in the context of caregiving.

In this interview, I talk about different types of lies and cultural differences in lying. In our new survey study, the Fami-LIES team will study international differences between Dutch and American parents in what they think about lying to children, what kinds of lies these parents tell their children, and what they teach their children about lying and being honest. 

Watch the full interview (in Dutch).
