What Should I Do if My Child Has a Seizure?
A very important responsibility is to keep calm and help the child to the floor and loosen any clothing around the neck. Turn the child on one side so saliva can flow from the mouth. Protect his head against the hard ground by use of a cushion or pillow. Do not put anything in the child's mouth. It is impossible to swallow your tongue. Children are often drowsy and desire to sleep following a seizure. After the seizure, you should contact the child's health-care provider to determine if your child should be immediately examined.
