Good but didn't teach the morales

In general this was a very good movie. I agree that in general Tinkerbell is a good role model for kids, but there are a few things I didn't like in this one: 1. The rats part towards the end was pretty scary. I find that muting it solves the problem for kids that get too scared. Do they need to have such scary parts in movies targeted at smaller kids? 2. Obeying the rules: Tink wanted her friend to break the rules, and I was happy to see him say no. Then I was sad to see him give in. So we had a talk about that. 3. Asking for help: Tink got into a ton of trouble by trying to find a way to hide her mistake rather than ask for help. Now I wish the movie would have covered these topics itself instead of requiring the parent to step in and teach the morale. The fairy mother could easily tell her at the end that she should ask for help rather than break the rules and cover it up. I want to see good morales taught. This is making me question if we want to purchase the movie or not. Do I want my kids continually watching a movie where after covering up the truth and not getting caught they're rewarded?
