You've decided that Fern doesn't get in Jake's car. If things feel weird, it's best to walk away from a situation. Fern hadn't told a trusted adult or a friend where she was going or that she was meeting up with Jake which could have put her in a potentially dangerous situation.

Deception: A NIOC Serial - Callum's Story

Deception: A NIOC Serial - Callum's Story

Brandon was manipulated and groomed so he trusted Kim and she eventually took advantage of him. Attitudes towards males and females being groomed and exploited can differ, leaving some people more vulnerable than others with the signs being swatted off as "boys will be boys" or "it's all a part of growing up". As you can see, Callum thought Brandon was just maturing quickly but he soon realises that the situation was much more serious than it originally seemed. We need to look out for our mates, know the signs and flag up anything out of the ordinary or out of character, we can help save lives.
