HOw do you say "grooming" in Spanish


"Grooming" is the term that is used to describe the process of enticing a child to participate in sexual acts. This might include buying presents for a child, tickling a child and seeing how he or she responds, telling a child a secret and asking him/her not to tell, or perhaps engaging in increasingly threatening behavior with a child as preparation for sexual acts that will be kept secret. The best I can come up with is something like seducir but that is not really near the mark. I would be happy with a phrase if there is no single word.

This concept is important when trying to explain child sexual abuse to lay and professional audiences. THANKS!
