My son went through a time that he didn't want to leave his comfort area, he would still go but it was always a fight, so we stopped saying we were going outside, we said we were going to go on an adventure. We started out with small adventures, life crawling around the house on our hands and knees going on safari and looking out for wild animals, which would be spotted everywhere, then we would go on adventures in the yard, and we would go on adventures to the grocery store to buy food for dinner, and we talked constantly about where we were, what was around us, other cars, what colors the cars were, identify trucks, pick-up trucks, dump trucks, 18 wheelers, trains or train tracks, buildings, red lights and green lights and what they mean, trees, big trees, little trees, tree just like the ones in our yard, constantly talking about something, noticing something, or asking questions about things, he responded well and it became a game to go on an adventure everywhere we went, and by constantly talking to him he felt involved and it became fun. Maybe just changing the approach from going bye-bye to going on an adventure might make the difference you need. Hope this helps!
