I know this sounds crazy but it is exactly the way things are. Please conceal my identity before uploading this. I am a mother of three and I have currently been married for eleven years. Both my husband and I are working. My husband has a private business which affords him more time as opposed to mine. I work as an employee in an organization and my job takes my time so I don’t get to stay in the house as much as I would love to or spend great time with my children and husband. We have two house helps. One is a live-in nanny while the other one comes and leaves after working.
I cherish my children a lot just like every other parent. All my toilings are for them and I do not hesitate to provide for them or give them exactly what they need. I am in a huge fix currently. I taught my children sex education a long time ago and because I rarely spend time with them, I make sure that I remind them to talk to me if anything goes wrong or if anyone speaks to or touches them in a way that is unusual. Since last month, my son has been acting in some type of way. When I ask him he is very reluctant to talk and acts as if he is scared but when I press further, he is always acting scared and pointing at his private part.
This thing has been worrying me since. When I ask him if anyone touched him, he would nod and when I ask if it is in school or at home, he would say it’s at home. If I ask by who he keeps quiet for long. His face is usually filled with fear and he would point at photos of his father when I insist. This has been eating me up since. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if I should take tis seriously or not. My husband bathes my kids. He has been doing that for a long time now as his way to support me when I am away. He says that since I am not available to do it, he would do it by himself. He doesn’t allow the nanny to bath the kids.

He has been quite supportive and now that this is happening, I don’t know how to react. My child is still so small so his speaking is impaired a bit. I don’t know how to handle this. I haven’t confronted my husband because I don’t know how to do so and I don’t have much evidence. I don’t want to bring this up if I am not sure. We all know how delicate this matter is and I would like to treat it as such. I need help on what to do. If I approach my husband without evidence, this could go south if not handled well. My Major fear is losing my happy family; my husband and kids if this escalates. What if it is not true? What if it’s true? I don’t know what to do.
