Remember: in the adult world, saying "He made me do it", or "He forced me too" doesn't work. You have to learn to take responsibilities for your own actions. Rather than telling mom, or your teacher that your friend told you to do it, say that you're sorry, that you learned from your mistake, and that it won't happen again. This will tell them that you are mature enough to take responsibility for your actions.
