My 9-year old son is often afraid of being by himself in a room. This is worse after dark, but even during the middle of the day he would rather be with another person even if he's board than to be playing something he loves to do in a room by himself. He tells me he's scared, but won't say what specifically he's scared of. I thought he'd grow out of it by now. Is this a typical reaction for a single child?
