    60 years of experience with epilespy has taught me that these 3 things are the most important. Do these and everything else will fall into place.

    1. be realistic but don't treat your child as a sick person.
    2. realize you're never going to like it, but instead of epilepsy being this much of his life (hands spread wide) help your son realize iit's only this much (hands 2 inches apart).
    3. never give up trying meds until you find one that works.
