I am a positive woman of two children 9 and 11 and hate to think what it would be like if someone tried to keep my children away from me because of my status.
It is up to your husband to tell the kid's when he feels they should know.
I hope you are not just using this as an excuse to punish your ex for being unfaithful. Think long and hard about your motives.
I am careful my children never get exposed to the virus from me but as another poster said they will probaly come in contact with many people with the virus in their lives. the key to safety is educating yourself and your children on safe practice and transmission.
