How do i tell my mom i broke my iphone?

Last Friday I dropped my iPhone. I told my dad not to tell my mom. He agreed, and took it to the Apple store. They said I need a new one. My dad said that only way he's going to get me a new iPhone, is if I tell my mom that I broke it and need a new one.

Keep in mind today is Feb. 11th, I got the iPhone on Christmas day.

I don't know what to say, I know she's going to FLIP!

How did you tell your mom that you got your period?

ANSWER #5 of 6

You just do?

I mean accidents happen. If she gets mad, there really is nothing you can do to control that. She chooses to get upset. You could offer to do extra chores or help her out around the house. That might help? But bottom line is, you really just have to tell her... It's not the end of the world... It's just a phone. Get a case this time... It's probably cheaper then buying a new phone
