The study was performed on a group of 91 children with their first febrile convulsion whose parents were then instructed in the use of rectal diazepam in the event of a further seizure. Later, the families were periodically recalled for interviews. The aim was to study the acceptance and cooperation of the families, the psychological attitude and the relation between the findings and parents' educational level. At the end of the follow-up, 80% of the 91 families showed good cooperation and psychological benefits. There was no relationship between the findings at the end of the follow-up and families' educational level. Even in the presence of a favorable psychological attitude, recurrences of febrile convulsions were still a frigthening experience for many parents.
