In brief: Sometimes nothing!

Rolandic epilepsy is a form of epilepsy that often afflicts children, but it is considered a "benign" form of epilepsy.
Most of the time it begins in children who are between 6 and 8, and it goes away by itself by around age 14. Because of the benign nature, often times no treatment is recommended. If the seizures are causing problem for the child, various seizure medicines can be helpful.
