Grooming of children on the Internet

The purpose of grooming is to make a victim. Grooming is done to choose a victim, to see if the person may cooperate with sexual abuse because of the imbalance of power and coercion. Grooming is done to make a potential victim feel comfortable enough to be close to an offender, to be alone with an offender and, after the abuse, to keep the behaviour a secret.
