A question about proper adjective to put in the sentence. I would like to say that children are influenced by things much more easily than older people in one sentence going like "Children are ____" What kind of addictive can I use for that? and is vulnerable right for the meaning?

Another suggestion: susceptible. However, you need to say what children are susceptible to: susceptible to ideas, susceptible to stronger personalities, susceptible to peer pressure... Naïve is far too close to "gullible".

I wouldn't use vulnerable, no, unless you mean they are easier influenced by bad behaviour. Perhaps children are more 'naive'.
