Re: when and how to tell my teen kids

My kids have known since they were in their early teens. It's was brought up in a matter of fact manner and was always handled as such. Any questions they had over the years were answered honestly.

I did this for several reasons.

1) Secrets cause their own problems.
2) For their own protection in case they ever found me bleeding and unconscious.
3) Along with this knowledge and frank conversations about sex and safer sex. They understood the importance of condoms.

The benefit is they grew up with an understanding of HIV that helps to dissipate some of the stigma one family at a time.
