All I can say is that educating them about HIV as well as other sexually transmitted diseases before they become sexually active is of utmost importance. You need to let them know you have it and educate them because then they are less likely to think " I'll never get it". Knowing you have it will make them aware that ANYONE can get it. We were honest with our children and they had questions sure but we answered them as best we could. We were blindsided with my husband testing positive. But it never changed the way any of the family felt about him. Choice is always the parents but I myself would much rather let my children know than to hide it and have them be careless and end up with it.
