All 3 of mine have seen it happen to me. It's just impossible for them not too because i have several a day still. We have a daughter who is 15 and two boys, 11 and 6. Im blessed to have such smart kids, that they all understand epilepsy and have helped me through many seizures. Even my youngest has helped guide me to the floor and sit with me until it passes and then helps me up slowly after.

Would come to the staff room door just to make sure I was ok In the end I had to ask a colleague to tell her I was finr

Had some in front of my kids. They were little scared @ first. Learned really quick on what to do to help. My son is 19 about a year ago I feel like I could have a seizure. He looked like a small little boy. I went to work. Because I work @ @ nursing home. Knew they could help if I needed. I told my boss. Don't ever call my son it I have a seziure.

My teenagers know i have them. I was just diagnosed with complex partial 2 1/2 years ago. They are not worried and it is just their mom being “weird” but explained now.

I don't have a child yet but I was my niece's babysitter. She didn't know what seizure is the so she labelled it as "Gimme gimme" (song was famouse then) My niece is one of the people who made me feel normal and loved. She gives me cards with friends signatures whenever I'm in the hospital
