I don't know how long it has been since the seizure but, kids are smarter than we give them credit for. Perhaps finding a good way to explain what happened, how it happened, and what you do to prevent that, then encouraging him to make the decisions (with guidance) to prevent it will give him back a sense of control. Also Mix in spray bottle one part water and one part vanilla seemed oil. Lable seziure prevention and spray him before bed. it works for monsters too.

it will take time. Seizures are scary for everyone and sometimes have lasting after effects that he may be too young to explain. I know that at 6, I would not have had the words to explain what was happening to me.

is he in counciling? maybe your local JDRF chapter can find him a mentor. if he gets to know another child who has experienced these things, it may help.

Maybe you can get him a continuos glucose monitor, the base stays in your room for you to see his blood sugars.

The insurance won't cover that!
