Febrile seizures are considered a very common syndrome presented in the pediatric emergency room. Witnessing these seizures may can cause anxiety in parents and generate them psychological sequelae such as major depressive disorder in the short term, or sleep disorders in the long term. An appropriate care for parents must be put in place in the emergency department, with the objective of improving their knowledge of this pathology and its care, and thus to reduce their anxiety and prevent potential inappropriate or even deleterious behavior and maneuvers towards the child.
