Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

Bismillahhir rahmanir rahim: بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

{ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَجَاوَزَ عَنْ أُمَّتِي ثَلاثَةً : الْخَطَأَ ، وَالنِّسْيَانُ ، وَمَا أُكْرِهُوا عَلَيْهِ }

"Allaah has forgiven my nation things they do by mistake, by forgetfulness and things that they do by coercion."

so those are the only three cases that could be forgiven if u did something wrong

امرأة في عهد رسول الله كانت تدعو صبيها فلم يأت فقالت تعال أعطيك تمرة و كانت تقبض يديها، فسألها رسول الله ستعطيه شيئا قالت نعم و كان عندها تمرة، فقال لها: أما إنك لو لم تعطه لكتبت عليك كذبة

a woman in the time of the prophet was calling for her son but e didn't come so she said come i'll give you something while making a fist with her hand(as if she was holding something in it)so the messenger of Allah asked her are you going to give him something she said yes and she had a date so he told her if you didn't give him then you would have lied

so i guess if someone is allowed to lie for a good reason she was to be allowed but then it is not for good the boy will eventually be accustomed to lying and if u lie to make help someone or two bring peace between two people they will go along but when they discover it was a lie that would make things a lot worse , so ur answer is

Abû Hurayrah relates that Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or REMAIN SILENT. [ Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim ]

Assalamu alaikum. In addition to what brother tokabo said, there is an hadeeth (i've forgoten the narator) which goes- The prophet PBUH says "tell the truth even if it is bitter".
