Read two letters to a youth magazine and express your opinion about them. What advice could you give to these people?

a. My friend has strict parents who do not like him going out to the disco. He wants me to lie for him by telling his mum that he is at my house. I dont want to lie, but I dont want to let him down either. What can I do? I want to help but do you think he is pushing things too far?

b. There has been a series of thefts of property and money in our group, and various things seem to have disappeared. The police have been called in, they were looking into the problem but so far nobody has been punished. The other day I called on my best friend. He was out and his mother asked me to wait in his room. As I was waiting for him to turn up, I started looking around and suddenly came across a couple of things stolen a week before. I went hot and cold. I didnt know what to do, and when my friend finally came I said nothing. I dont want to lose my friend or to break up his family he already has enough trouble with his dad. On the other hand, theft is a serious crime. If I turn the blind eye, I will be letting down my other group mates. What shall I do?
