My 12 year old son experienced a seizure for the fist time recently. I had witnessed his father having a seizure years ago so I'm pretty familiar with what they look like. It was a frightening experience to witness my son going through this. I felt helpless to him. The only thing I could do was make sure he was safe. During the seizure I was frantic, hysterical and above all a nervous wreck. Though his father has Epilepsy I know it's not hereditary but can be more common in children with parents who do. What I need to know is how can I be more relaxed and helpful to my son should he experience another?
