i got caught cheating. The assistant principal called my mom, gave me a 1hr detention. At the car ride, what should i say to protect me?

Update:

So my mom will sit with me in the principals office. I cheated because there was a really big fight between my friends, and it distracted me from my success in school. What do i say in order for my mom to understand the situation?

    lol, there's no excuse for cheating, so rather than try to come up with an excuse, just say you're sorry and it won't happen again, then, and only then, should you back it up with I've been distracted by this and that lately, but not before you apologize and say it won't happen again.

    You can't say anything to protect yourself. You got caught, just admit it.

    Just tell the truth. The jig is up, it's time to pay the piper.

    Blame her unreasonable expectations.

    Admit that you're actually quite stupid and had no other means to live up to them.

    Tell your mother that you didn't cheat on purpose & that you in fact misinterpreted the rules.

      It means that you're innocent of cheating because the teacher wasn't clear enough on what constitutes cheating

    There's nothing to protect. You got caught and will hopefully learn from this mistake.

    Nothing.

    It happens. Just listen and don't say anything. The more you say, the more it will infuriate your mother.

    When she asks why you did it, tell her the truth and in a short answer. That's it.

    From then on, pocket the lecture and don't do it again.
