Is speaking lies always wrong?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

As long as it doesn’t put you in trouble! Some time or the other, it does put you into trouble.

Now, if a five year old asks you, ‘Where did my brother or sister come from?’, and you say, ‘Yes, some bird brought the child.’ It is okay to lie at that time.
