The psychosocial impact of epilepsy upon a child and his family must be realized. It can lead to a variety of problems including behavioral dysfunction and school difficulties. Parents must be educated and guided to prevent making their child vulnerable, dependent and overprotected. Children must understand the nature of seizures, the fact that their lives are normal almost all the time and that they can cope with seizures. They must not let seizures interfere with their education, friendships and growth.
