A morbid hatred of or an aversion to children; sometimes including one's own child: Kathy has a feeling of misopedia which was intensified when her neighbor's son accidentally hit a baseball through her living room window and he denied doing it even though she saw him do it while she was outside working in her garden.

Obviously there are many examples of misopedias taking place in some societies, because every once in a while, there are news reports that reveal information about some adults being prosecuted for not taking care of their children or because they were mistreating them.

A strong dislike or hatred of children.
