Wikipedia has more on Pedophobia
Pedophobia (or paedophobia or pediaphobia) is the fear of children. The fear is mainly suffered by adults, especially child-bearing parents. The common triggers include children being crazy and doing many misbehaving things, like breaking things, and worrying too much on children. This could devastate their children especially if parents leave them in daycare permanently until they grow up. This could relieve the children by having parents treat pedophobia using several methods like cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, support groups, and relaxation techniques.
