    hello I want to go to a dubstep party, only thing is its in the next town at finishes at 2-3 so theres no way i would be allowed out this late and my parents would not drive all that way (30 mins) to collect me. I am 17. THey would say no. anyway i was gonna tell a white lie and say im sleeping at a mates, they are more likely to say yes then. do you think think im bad lying?

    You could just leave earlier and be honest?

    It could all go horribly wrong, but if you think it's worth the risk then sure, I wouldn't because I would be too busy worrying to enjoy the night

    Yes, do it. It's not like god will punish you, and your parents are unlikely to find out. Lying is sometimes winning.

    The fact you needed to ask might suggest no.

    I would just tell them and if they don't like it go anyway, or at least this is what I did from the age of 13/14 or so.

    To save yourself grief just lie.

    Just make sure you don't accidentally slip up! Like I went to a gig once and got found out because I spent the whole day after singing the music.. and my Mum was like "there's no way you didn't go to that gig last night.." but if you can be sure, and it is safe, then go for it.

    Well where will you stay for the night? I mean it finishes at 3am right? And people don't normally return from stay-overs at that time, so won't you have to stay at someones house anyway? So technically, no lies told...

    lying is always wrong unless you're doing it to save someone or yourself
    it's not about the technicalities either - if you mislead your parents or know that you've led them to believe something which isn't true, you're lying

    it just depends on how willing you are to lie to your parents really, I used to do it all the time but now I try not to and feel really guilty when I do

    Do it then, but surely there is a chance your parents will find out?

    I'd say get a taxi but 30 minutes away is alot! How exactly are you going to get home?

    By all means go for the lie but your parents will find out. :colonhash:

    Do it.

    So many times I've had to do this sort of thing because of over-protective parents. Just be sensible, and don't slip up. Everyone is happy.
