Grooming: How Pedophiles and Child Molesters Groom Victims and Their Families

We have several articles that describe the grooming process that predators use both on the internet and in real life. We also offer suggestions on how to combat these dangers.

Pedophiles see themselves as “child lovers” not as abusive or dangerous. They find ways to justify their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They often claim that parents are neglectful and that they can take better care of other people’s children by ‘loving’ and ‘caring’ for them.

Parents should beware of anyone who wants to be with their children more than they do.

The pedophiles do not want you to know this. Knowledge really is power. You need to educate yourself so that you can have power over these monsters. The power to protect your children. The power to stop them.

Pedophiles operate in a specific pattern. They are calculating, manipulative, deceptive, and very patient when it comes to acquiring their goal. If you can recognize this behavior, then you can identify the predator and stop them.

So take a look at our Grooming Articles. The more people who have this information, the fewer victims will be available for these monsters to prey on. Spread the word. We are all fighting for the safety of our children. Remember...

Sixty-seven percent of all victims of sexual assault reported to law enforcement agencies were juveniles (under the age of 18), and 34% of all victims were under age 12.
