    In researching how child grooming is spoken of in the US I found they do speak of grooming or bunny hunting but it is couched in a way that assumes the reader isn’t familiar with the term. Here is another way of presenting it:

    Child “grooming” on social media prompts calls for government crackdown

    Social media firms may need to do more to prevent online child grooming, the process of picking a potential victim and gaining their trust to manipulate and exploit them.  It was revealed that 1,316 offences were recorded in the first six months of a new child grooming law in England and Wales, reports The Times.

      Great idea – I will clarify now in the text of the story.

    In the US, grooming means things like brushing someone’s hair or helping them prepare for a future career position. I take it that there is a very different meaning in the UK. Please change the language to be something that is more clearly understood in the USA.

      Hey Mark. I’ve added in a link to the Wikipedia page for child grooming. Hopefully this solves the problem of people not knowing this definition of grooming.

      The distinction is in grooming vs child grooming. Although I’d be interested to hear what a better alternative term would be in the US.
