Disney movies may seem like harmless time passers, but some instill truly awful lessons. These are often buried in a medley of singing and colorful characters, so they can be hard to spot. Your children may end up taking the lessons to heart, though, so watch out!
Making Questionable Deals Is Okay Sometimes -The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid has any number of questionable narratives, but the worst one is that making deals that go against your better judgment and everything you know to be right is okay sometimes. In this case, Ariel makes a deal with the evil sea witch to give up her voice in exchange for legs and a possible shot with a guy that she doesn’t even know. In the end, everything works out okay for Ariel, leaving the distinct impression that there will not always be consequences to bad deals.
