Lying is not possible prior to the time that a child becomes intuitively aware that its conscious mind is a privileged space to which only it has access. This may give a sense of power initially, but if a feeling of guilt comes too strongly into play as a result of too strong a correction for the lie it may prepare the way down the road for alienation and, as a compensation for this, narcissism.
