    Personally I'm finding it very hard to remain free of judgement when the OP's "interrogation technique" is to scare a 6year old into thinking that a lie will make his parents disappear.

    Something like that can have lasting effects and be harmful to the child's mental health. It really is quite distressing.
    I very much agree and have seen this for myself. But every parent deserves a chance to change and I hope OP gets something out of this so that his son lives a happy stress free life with good attachments to his parents. Perhaps OP does not understand the impact of his techniques. One had to assume this is not on purpose to hurt or cause harm to his child.

    What I mean by that is, perhaps the boy never had an icy pole but says he did so the questions stop.
    I think this is a possibility also

    This is what I was thinking. We've had similar lying issues with DS. DF questioned him on something until he confessed, only for DS to admit later he 'just wanted Daddy to stop'.

    My heart goes out to that poor kid - having parents who think icy poles cause colds, make assumptions of guilt & then bully him into 'confessing'

    I realise this sounds a bit wanky; but you get what I mean.
