Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, my BFF keeps cheating on our homework..."

Dear Carol, 

My best friend keeps texting me to send her the answers to our virtual school homework. I’ve asked her to stop multiple times. I’m worried that if I tell, it would ruin our friendship or get one of us suspended or even expelled.

-My BFF Cheats 

Dear My BFF Cheats, 

I don't think you should report her, but can you subtly try to change the subject in your texts? If you want to be more direct, say, “I’d be glad to study together, but I don’t like sharing my answers because I’m afraid we might both end up getting in trouble.”

We want to hear from you! Go here to submit questions to Carol about every sticky sitch life throws at you.
