Telling a young child

Explaining seizures to a very young child who doesn't know much about his/her own body or how it works can be quite difficult. We think the description given by a seven year old named Peter, of his own seizures would be helpful even for very young children: -

"It's like when you are watching TV and the picture gets all blurry and fuzzy for a minute and then goes back on again OK. That's what it's like to me."

You can add that this happens to lots of people, children and grown-ups, and the medicine you take helps you keep your picture clear.
