Online grooming is a process which can take place in a short time or over an
extended period of time. Initial conversations online can appear innocent, but often
involve some level of deception. As the predator (usually an adult) attempts to
establish a relationship to gain a child’s trust, he may initially lie about his
age or may never reveal his real age to the child, even after forming an established
online relationship. Often, the groomer will know popular music artists, clothing
trends, sports team information, or another activity or hobby the child may be
interested in, and will try to relate to the child.
 
These tactics lead children to believe that no one else can understand them or their
situation like the groomer. After the child’s trust develops, the groomer may use
sexually explicit conversations to test boundaries and exploit a child’s natural
curiosity about sex. Predators often use pornography and child pornography to lower a
child’s inhibitions and use their adult status to influence and control a child’s
behavior.
 
They also flatter and compliment the child excessively and manipulate a child’s
trust by relating to emotions and insecurities and affirming the child’s feelings
and choices.
