Lying that is probably not a serious problem: Young children (ages 4-5) often make up stories and tell tall tales. This is normal activity because they enjoy hearing stories and making up stories for fun. These young children may blur the distinction between reality and fantasy.
What to do if a Child or Adolescent lies: Parents are the most important role models for their children. When a child or adolescent lies, parents should take some time to have a serious talk and discuss:
* the difference between make believe and reality, lying and telling the truth,
* the importance of honesty at home and in the community, and
* alternatives to lying.
If a child or adolescent develops a pattern of lying which is serious and repetitive, then professional help may be indicated. Evaluation by a child and adolescent psychiatrist would help the child and parents understand the lying behavior and would also provide recommendations for the future.

Obviously your brother is possessed by a Demon. He'll turn 15 in the year 2020? 20 was called the Devil by Jakob Böhme. I urge you not to take this lightly. A child saying such things out of the blue with a straight face is never a good sign.
