The truth. They'll find out some how. Best to have truth be told then a lie. You lie and they find out truth you think you were in trouble before. Watch Out. You may still get punished but less then if you lie. Good luck
The best thing to do is admit you screwed up and apologize. Accept your punishment without throwing a fit. There is consequences for your actions and show them you understand that. They will respect the honesty and that's going to get you further then excuses. Good luck!

TY Well... I am a mom of 4... My daughters (now that they are older) & I sat around talking about this very thing & what worked on me... 1 daughter was amazing with this... She told me the more details she made the story with the easier I was to convince. That is they will still be pissed. But Here's the key for you... Make sure you go to the parent you are closest to or the one that you always get a Yes answer out of. Give them a detailed reason why you dipped... Look them in the eye play on their emotions (but not to much) and Seriously this will work!
Like your taking a lot of crap at school and you were just so stressed out. Look them in the eye and say I didn't think you'd understand "Mom" I am Really sorry I should have talked to you about things... A lil sucking up like you actually care about what she is doing in the kitchen will So help you out.
But if they find out your lying. It will come back to Bite you. The truth is the Best. I agree with Iprice. Also lilmamas has an Excellent point about Not throwing a Fit when you do find out your punishment. But this is what worked for my daughter with me...
well my mom just found out that i skipped and she made me call the school and explain to them. I gave her the honest reasons. That girls talking about me, I have exams coming up which stress me out because I missed a lot of school, since I was sick ans that I just have a work overload. I think admitting that you screwed up is the best thing and just to take your punishment.
