Let me start off by saying I'm not mom, Wyatt is my boyfriends 9 year old son. I dont have a lot of expirience with kids, so i joined this site for input and advice. One question i had was this, Wyatt wont play in his room. His room looks into the living room. If we're watching tv, he would rather bring his toys out into the living room rather than play in his room, even though he can clearly see us when he's in his room. And if you ask him to shut his door, he'd rather put his toys up and be bored out with us. He doesnt play outside unless one of us is out there too. It took almost 2 years to get him to sleep in his room by himself. Is that how dependent most 9 year olds are?
