[SEL303a13]The present translation is a modified version (under a shortened title) of the one published in 1924.

[SEL303a14]On its first appearance in the Zeitschrift (in the summer of 1913) this paper was the first of several by various writers included under a general caption ‘Aus dem infantilen Seelen-leben’. This caption was incorporated in the 1918 reprint of the paper and was also inserted in the title of the English translation of 1924; thereafter it was dropped.

[SEL303a15]We can understand children telling lies, when in doing so, they are imitating the lies told by grown-up people. But a number of lies told by well-brought-up children have a particular significance and should cause those in charge of them to reflect rather than be angry. These lies occur under the influence of excessive feelings of love, and become momentous when they lead to a misunderstanding between the child and the person it loves.
