Ms. Hensen stated that the show’s gimmick, which follows several children through puberty from 11 to 13, should be a warning sign to parents whose children might stumble upon it.

” “Grooming involves making children more comfortable with pornography to make them feel it’s not a big deal,” said Ms. Henson.
