Speaking about the different lifestyle choices informs without attacking. In the end they will get the message.
Notice I didn't call anybody a **** or a low life. If they are very young 12 or less then give general overview and let them know that you will discuss it more when they are older. And as they mature you can expand on the negatives of that lifestyle choice.
I would think, a discussion on how their dead mothers lifestyle was negative, isn't going to be received well by any teen or any adult.
Leave the mother out of that discussion. The kids will come to their own conclusions on her as their minds mature. Let them remember the mother they loved.
