The story of R'Kayla Brigg's disappearance might be a reminder that children are especially prone to be victimized by a tactic known as grooming.
According to the Darkness to Light website, D2L, an organization dedicated to ending sexual abuse of children, one of the ways predators groom young children is by filling a need in the youth. "Perpetrators utilize tactics such as gift giving, flattery, gifting money, and meeting other basic needs. Tactics may also include increased attention and affection towards the targeted child. On the surface, grooming a child can look like a close relationship between the offending adult, the targeted child and (potentially) the child’s caregivers.
