I played soccer for 15 years with Epilepsy without a single problem. The key is education. The arents that are providing the negative feedback need to be educated about epilepsy and the fact that it is not a disease that will prevent anyone from playing sports and what to do or expect should this child have a seizure while playing. The main thing is that they need to understand the basics of what epilepsy is and what it is not.
