I'd be really happy if somebody could help me with this. Could the expression above also mean 'to be perverted'? Is there any idiom used for somebody who's been influenced in a harmful way, say, by their classmates, friends and so on? I heard someone saying, '...lose their way...' which seems to be wrong.
Thanks a lot!
Could 'to be led astray' be used in informal English as well?
When someone is led astray they often "leave the straight and narrow" and might "go off the rails" altogether.
not a teacher
Then they might also "fall off the wagon".
