Behavioral Issues

Hello - I am a parent of an adult son whose has had epilepsy since he was six years old. All his life he exhibited behavioral problems. The question in my mind has always been how much is he in control of and how much is damage that he has suffered from countless tonic clonic seizures. The doctors don't have any answers for me as to what it is I can do. I always say if he cannot control his agitation, aggression, etc. then please tell me how our family can manage it. I don't get any answers. He's an adult now and we are still experiencing these things. Has anyone else dealt with these types of behavioral problems and if so, do you have any suggestions for me?
Thank you so much - Den
