    I think you should tell him the truth, that you fell off your bike and your phone had the back luck of being under you when you fell, and you didn't want to break it

    You tell him what happened as soon as possible. Attempting to hide it or coming up with excuses won't make things better.

    Just tell him you fell of the bike.

    If you cracked your screen, there's a possibility that it's not waterproof any more. Keep it away from water until you can get it replaced through your warranty.

    Oh man s7 edge, good thing you have warranty but does it cover accidentally broken phone?
    Not sure about your dad, when i was at your age i broke my 600 euro laptop, good thing my dad is nice and didn't do anything but he said he would never ever buy a laptop. Just past.

    Yes honesty is always the best policy when I was young I used to try cover stuff I did up and lie my way out of situations and it only ever got me into more trouble lol.

    You can fix by yourself and buy a new glass/touch panel for S7.
    I did it once and that saved me from being blamed

    Or you can just go in and say "Hey... dad.. I broke my phone but it's under warranty so we can get free replacement!" and everything is going to be okay.

    Are you kidding ? Lying is a COWARD! Truth is the best policy. Tell the truth. The lying will make it worse and you can hide it and it will be found out and your trust will be lost!!

    Truth can hurts or angry but it will help your father to trust you more. Think about it!

    Why would you even have to ask. You're 14 and you don't know how to walk up to your dad and say "Hey so I broke my phone when I fell off my bike" ?
    It's pretty simple. No need to lie. You didn't try and test how many times you could hit it with a hammer before it cracked. It was an accident. Shit happens. Most parents actually love their kids and wont get mad for something like that.

    No kidding. I didn't get a phone until I was 20.

    Now I see and know of kids as young as 6 getting their own phones...blows my mind.

    I think it makes sense to give kids a phone as soon as they start running around unsupervised outside. And some kids do that as early as 6, depends on the neighbourhood of course. But if their bike breaks, they get lost, or they get hurt then having a phone on them is just safer. Doesn't have to be an expensive phone of course. In fact i'd say don't give them expensive ones til they're like 14+ or so.
