Grooming is the act of establishing emotional trust and connection with someone in order to later take advantage of the person, often in abusive and abusive ways.

Critics disputed the plot point. the San Francisco Chronicleit is Carla Meyer wrote in his review: “With his Duskbanal dialogue and worldview, a lack of adventures, and a supposed love story that’s more like a grooming story.”

RogerEbert.comit is Nandini Balial okay, writing, “the pair are forming what the show would like to call a friendship, but I prefer to think of it as just grooming. Ages 6-18, [Clare]in her own words, shapes her libido around Henry.”
