This is tough stuff but, being afraid to let a counselor in on it isn't good. You need to be vulnerable if your family is going to heal. You do not need to go into any detail here but "back to how it was" means that you're back to how things were before the traumatic event. Which means it could happen again. And your kids know that, at least at some level. For them to feel safe, life cannot go on as if nothing happened.

Again, no need for you to share any details that you don't want to. Just throwing that out there.
