Everyday i have to lie to my mom. Everyday she asks me "did you go to class today?". Even if i didn't go o class, i say, "yes mom, i went". I can't avoid this. If i tell the truth, my mom will worry about me. That's why i lied to her. She love me a lot. I also love her. I lied to her for her happiness only. What should i do? Will i tell the truth to her? Have you ever lied to your mom?

I'm not studying in school. I'm studying at college. As you said i have to earn money and so i don't have a mind to go to college. I loved my girlfriend truly, deeply. I live my life only for her. But she said that money is more important to her than my love. But she also loves me. As i have no money, i should earn more money to save my love. That's why i don't go to college and lied to my mom

Hello,Friend: Maybe you can try to discuss with your girl friend and let she understand you will earn more money after your gratuation,How long can you finish your college?3 0r 4 years?That is not a long time.If she can't wait for you,I think you should think clearly the girl is realy deserve you to give up your college?Compared with your girl friend,I think your mother and study is more important.Your girl friend said the money was important than your love, But mother will never say that,mother will love and care about you without any condition.If you lie to her,I think she will be extreme sad after she know that.However,I don't know If there is a solution to satisfy both of your mother and gril friend,If yes,that is the best choice.If you can go to college to study and only use spare time to earn money,So you can study well and earn money at the same time....Maybe that is not possible.At last,I want to know what subject do you study in your college?

Unfortunately, yes I have lied to my mum and, like you, it's to keep her happy. I think we are so worried about making our parents happy and trying not to upset them, that we feel that we have to tell white lies in order to maintain the peace.

I think we all lie. Maybe not the same as you but in different way. It doesn't mean wanting others to be happy, we need to lie. In your case, maybe it's good if you don't skip class so you don't have to lie. But if you really need to be absent from class, you tell your mom why so she would understand :)
