Parenting and Sharing Your HIV Status with Your Kids: A Girl Like Me LIVE

Submitted on Aug 25, 2021


In our seventh episode of A Girl Like Me LIVE, host Ciarra "Ci Ci" Covin talked with community advisory board members Ieshia Scott and Destiny Smith about parenting and sharing your HIV status with your kids.

Living with HIV has its challenges and so does parenting. This discussion highlights how these mothers have managed their HIV diagnoses while parenting, how they talk to their children about HIV, and tips they have for other parents living with the diagnosis.

No approach is one-size-fits-all and this is part of what we explore during our conversation. Learn tips on how to talk to your children about HIV and gain support from our diverse community with these wonderful mothers during this episode.

Make sure to check out this amazing and vulnerable conversation!
