It is likely just a stage. My older son is 5.5 years old and majority of the time he is afraid too. We only have one bathroom which is upstairs ( 6 stairs from the main level) and he is afraid to go alone too.



We just keep encouraging him and trying to get to go up on his own.

Music may help. It did for me. My issue was with the dark even as a teen. lol But music seemed to help. It may help him so he doesn't feel so alone up there. Worth a try!
