Is it morally reasonable to mislead or lie to a child for his or her own well-being? Is this sort of parental behavior a necessary "tool" for guiding a child to do the right thing until they can figure out what is right or wrong on their own?

Many cultures use the idea of Santa Claus making a list of who is naughty/nice as a way to manage the behaviors of children (because those children on the "nice list" receive presents). Do you feel that this parental behavior is morally reasonable?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Sometimes it is justifiable to use a lie for the well being of the child .All in all ,you don't have any ad intention but only to ensure the child is brought up in the right way.

I support it fully because am a product of such.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
