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: * Grief brings overwhelming feelings. * It is all right to have these feelings * Adults can help children by acknowledging these feelings. * When you are suffering grief, it helps to let your feelings out and cry. * It is important to have memories of people who have died and to go back to them. * It takes time, but the sadness does get better eventually. * It is all right to have fun even when you are grieving. Young adults are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS than anyone else. We should encourage children to develope 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.
