Hmmmm, since this seemed to have started after he watched tv in his room a few times, i'm thinking that maybe he watched something that really scared him. Maybe he thinks there is something in his room?

no thats whats crazy i had to turn knob and push against it till what was behind it moved a little then i could loo through where i opened door a little an seen it was tv stand with little drawers in it with tv on top that was blocking door so kept pushing door against it till i coul put my arms in to move it rest of the way i called a friend to check windows and stuff not sure of what was going on and the alarm on window still on and working window was still locked i was hoping it was something i could explain away but with my son so scared of this room and then this i dont know how to handle this situation. i have raised two other children whom are on their own now but this situation is very upsetting cause i cant see what he is afraid of and he cant verblize it well and he has health problems already and this is adding a lot of extra stress on him i know this sounds like a weird problem but its a real problem and i need to find a solution

When you say furniture was moved to block the door do you mean you couldn't open the door at all? Could you squeeze in a little?

he has never really slept in that room he tried one time when we first moved in 4 months ago . he came in my room saying sleep mommy. of course i let him. he is autistic and cant speak well. few weeks ago he started watching tv in his room and he did that 3 times and after that he cries and says bad room he has said it over and over and he wont let the door stay open. if im in there putting his clothes away he will run up and close the door. i went to open the door the other mournin and somehow furniture was moved in front of the door inside room! no one was in the room jesse slept on couch. so how did furniture get moved. what is scaring my child and this is so unfair being a 13 yr old autistic boy who has a hard time verbalizing shouldnt have to deal with something i cant see what do i do
