Investing one’s trust into the wrong hands can lead to serious consequences. Innocent actions can be manipulated if you confide in those who seek to betray others.

Peer pressure can make you do bad things that can have terrible effects on your future and you will not be the same person you once were. Being yourself is an amazing accomplishment, many people fail to stay the same and become drug addicts or possibly suicidal and that is why peer pressure is so dangerous.

I admire your post, fantasy films like Pinocchio, do teach children moral values. However, truth, courage, and selflessness are a lot for a young child to learn without a ton of bumps in the process.
