If you are having sexual feelings for your children you must realize that any kind of sexual contact with them is illegal and can cause them serious emotional harm. If you find that your impulse to touch them in a sexual way is overwhelming then call a friend or relative and ask them to come over. Seek counseling or psychotherapy as soon as possible.
If you have sexual feelings for your children, please get help from a professional. How do you know that you will not act upon these feelings at some time? I am not saying this is your fault. You could have an addiction of some kind. I am not a doctor, but please get help right away. Also, when you have these thoughts, please remove yourself from your children and go get help or talk to someone. You do not want your children children to be in danger. The fact that you came here to ask this question proves that you are brave and you want help and you do not want to hurt them. I wish you the best and please always remember to protect your children and get professional help if you can. Thank you so much for your honesty. Others may have a similar question, but you were not brave enough to ask.
Some of those kinds of feelings are within the normal spectrum of affection. A lot depends on the ages of your kids and exactly what kind of feelings. My recommendation would be to talk to a therapist about it and not to beat yourself up over it.
Perhaps talk to a therapist, sometimes we have such strong emotions for the people we love that all emotions can mix and match and get confused.
If you have sexual feelings for your children you need to immediately go seek some professional help because it's not right in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Clearly you know that it's wrong because you are asking for help, so that's good first step, but if you feel like you will get the urge to use those feelings with your children, stay away from them until you can get better. This is not healthy at all.
Probably seek professional help, no offence :P They probably know more than average internet "troll". If you recognise the problem that is a Big first step of solving it . You cud spend some time every day in nature , taking a walk and thinking about a deeper reason. Good luck , much love :)
Hmm this could cause a lot of dysfunction and instability in your household. I think consulting a therapist who is an expert in sexual trauma or similar would be very helpful to sort out how you feel!
Seek professional help as soon as possible . I highly recommend sharing these feelings in a respectable manner to your spouse to ensure the Saftey of your children .
Its good if you could seek some counseling help as this is not a positive feeling and might effect your relationship with your children as a family. They are your children and they trust you and respect u as a parent, do the same for them.
As parents we have close physical relation with our children that are normal. If you feel that your feelings are more of a sexual nature consult a professional.
You can look for an expert in this issue, a psycologist is a person who can listen and don't judge.
Please do not be scared. Speak directly with your doctor. They will be able to guide you to an appropriate person to speak with.
