I can tell when they are lying

Actually parents can't tell much better than chance if their kid is lying.
Four-year-olds lie about every two hours. A six-year-old about once an hour. In studies where kids are observed in the home about 96% of the kids lied. Most lie to cover up something they did wrong. Avoidance of punishment is the the primary reason kids lie to their parents.
