What was your experience telling the children in your life about your HIV status?

Niko's Answer

I don’t have any children. However, I do have nieces and nephews. I have already began doing education concerning HIV and other STIs for the older ones. It is a personal decision for each parent of when they feel the time is right to inform them of their status. My sister’s kids are all on social media and I am unsure if they know of my status since I have disclosed on social media. I know there will be lots of tears when I tell them I am infected. However, it is a conversation that must be had.
