Can breath-holding be prevented?
Although they cannot be prevented, the occurrence of breath-holding spells may follow a pattern, which may allow you to distract your child before they hold their breath. You may also be able to work with your doctor to come up with better coping strategies for you and your child, and find a way to discipline them without provoking another spell.
