Definitions Edit

Grooming is

a process by which someone makes contact with a child with the motive of preparing them for abuse either online or offline.[1]
[u]sing the Internet to manipulate and gain trust of a minor as a first step towards the future sexual abuse, production or exposure of that minor.[2]

Overview Edit

"Sometimes involves developing the child’s sexual awareness and may take days, weeks, months or in some cases years to manipulate the minor."[3]

"Abusers can use public online interactive spaces to find and meet children and young people. Indeed, children and young people can be exploited online without actual physical contact taking place in the real world, for example by sending and exchanging sexual images, and/or by persuading children and young people to send explicit images of themselves. Abusers may also record young people performing sexual acts through webcams.[4]
