My 2 almost 3 year old freaks out (like cries) when we leave the doors open (all doors). The first thing she does in the morning is run to the bathroom & shuts the toilet lid if it's up or closes the doors in the bathroom (1 to the toilet & tub & 1 to sink area). Say I'll go use the bathroom and she is in the living room & I finish & close only the door to the sink area & leave the lid open, along with the door open to tub & toilet & I come out & she's playing & she looks up & says "mommy close the toilet..." Like HOW does she know it's open? Sometimes I just test it & leave it open to see if she will know... & sure enough she does. I'll even tell her "I did close it..." & she'll go look & shut it along w the door that I left open which I hardly do... I usually close the bathroom doors & leave the toilet lid open.
She also freaks out about the closet. Her dad said that she hides herself in the closet & when he opened the door she was "talking to the wall..." I know we all have had imaginary friends at 1 point but I'm also concerned because I've never liked the closet so I wouldn't ever dare to hide in it & she's 2 almost 3. I want to talk to her Pediatrician but I want feedback to see what some say...
