I suggest instead of hiding from your child, be honest and work with your child(ren). Speak to him/her and explain what it is that you have experienced, if necessary apply forgiveness and explain to the child who you are and what you understand about yourself. Then work with your children to be self-honest and forgiving. that way, instead of hiding from your children you are showing them tools and working through your 'stuff'. Do not allow your pride to tell you it is not possible.
