Just Me and My Brother by

To the Teacher Use this story for life skils, health or cultural studies lessons, or as reader in English class. The following key concepts are dealt with: It is a responsibility to be the head of a household, and it is not easy. Children can support each other. Children need to seek out support from friends. Children who are heading households also need support from adults. It is good to remember people who have died - reliving memories is an important part of healing. Young adults are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS than anyone else. We should encourage children to develop self-respect and respect for others from an early age. This is one of the JAWS HIV/AIDS Readers developed for primary school learners.The story conveys the subtle psycho-social dimensions of the pandemic affecting learners' lives (personal and social developement). It can be used as a Reader, or to help teachers introduce subject matter that is difficult to manage in the classroom.
