Our son could not talk until he was around 3.5 years old, he would just point and grunt at what he wanted. He watched TV and just sat there watching it, when we had the close captioning on he would seem to scan the letters and words on the screen, and demanded in his grunting way, to have the captioning on while the show was on. Now since that time,now he is 8 years old, has been dianosted with Apspergers. This is what Bill Gates has, he now talks very well, and has a very high vocabulary. Not like most kids, he does not get along with persons his age , but talks well with adults. So based on what you have posted about your child I would have him see a REALLY good doctor, and talk to ASPEN, google it for your area. They will do an evaluation.

Sound to me he likes the lack of stimulation. I worked with special needs children at a research daydare. The would run the children through many diffrent forms of (positive) stimulation, all of the children had diffrent responses to all the diffrent stimulious. Special or normal all children respond diffrently to diffrent stimuli. Your son just like the lack of stimulaion. He may have sevsive eyes, or ears, or a combination of the two.
What ever the situation, he sound very normal. I have 2 girls and a boy. I've been around the block a time or two. Good luck.

I have a niece that is like that, she's about 7-8 i think, but she gets up at night sometimes and look off into nothing for at least an hour or go somewhere by herself and start talking and laughing, and later on she would tell us that she has been talking to someone that has passed away.

Kids are pure...

Yes, and when they are young like that, they also have no real fear of anything. As we grow we develop fear of whatever given things. A baby is a blank slate that understands nothing in the beginning....or do they?

All I can add - and I am a physician - is my own vague memories age 3-4

of doing the same thing in our first home. I thought there was something

/ someone in the closet and i dimly remember maybe talking to someone.

Oh well, children and their imaginations...! As long as there are no night

terrors (nightmares, with or without paralysis) and odd muscle jerks

(myoclonus), there is nothing neurologic to worry about.

My one year old nephew is forming sentences. I would play the "don't move" game at the age of 5. I remember how much fun it was. I may have spent much of my childhood on '___'.

Helloooooo...Did you ever hear of, take him to see a doctor. Why the hell are you asking the ATS group....DUH!!

There's web sites and forums for children's suspected mental problems or whatever may be the problem.
Seems to bother you, so go ask a expert. Gezzz you need to be told this.

I think this all is super natural ... for a child of this age.
We only have to natural fears (of falling and certain loud noises) ... watch here > < at about after sec. 50 ... The women in the interview is a specialist and also says at the end of this video (indirectly) that children do not fear darkness ... (it's a fear conditioned by the grown ups)

So well, very interesting thread and to be honest ...
I have a gut feeling what the behaviour of your son is about ... especially after you wrote this:

"I have gone into the room while he was in there and tried to sit next to him but it seems like I am bothering him. When he realizes that I'm there he jumps up and runs off (kind of like he is snapping out of it). And when I get out of the room he runs back into the room and comes out when he wants to."

"He won't always do it for 30 mins, sometimes 5 somtimes 20 but once he did it up to 30."

My nephew showed exactly the same behaviour in this age around 2 and he was a late bloomer too bc he was a preterm delivery. Compared to my niece who is 3 years senior to him, he also started to talk properly and in full sentences much later. But seeing and caring for the children of many friends and family members, it's absolutely normal that boys do start talking later ...
(The second son of friends didn't talk much for the first 6 years and was very bad in reading at school. The parents did put totally trust that it his way of development and put him on a Montessori School were children are given the surrounding of making their own decisions (what to learn and where to participate) very early.
After several months at school and teachers worrying about his reading ability ... from one day to another he started to read complete articles out of the papers
So he just was lazy, observed, safed his energy and had this 'coming out' when he was ready to read!)

But back to your 2 year old ...

Errrmmmmmmm ... could it be ... ??? *LOL* That he is doing 'his business' ??? I mean filling his diapers/nappies.

My nephew was and is also very active but when he had to do his poo-poo he was disappearing out of the blue for several minutes.

I once found him behind a curtain, standing there stiff, numb and concentrated and with a highly red face full of pressure, if you know what I mean. It was all very funny this time around because he (and also my niece) had the tendency to hide into closets, dark tight corners, bigger paper cartons, under the bed and bigger paper cartons ... not just to make their business.
When he first disappeared my family started a bit to panic and run through the house searching and shouting his name. I started to look for him/her silently and also observed once my niece in her early years talking to her imaginary friends. Her behaviour really was like someone was standing in front of her; I was just not able to see that friend. Later on I even asked her and she started to talk about her friends. They were 3 of them and also had names I still know. She also painted them ...

My nephew also sometimes fell asleep in the (dark) place he was looking for shelter, to do his poo or just to take a rest. Once my sister was close to call the police bc the boy had suddenly disappeard for more then one hour, they had looked for him in every corner of the house and even asked the neighbours. He was lieing and sleeping peacefully in the backmost corner under his parents bed, where the flashlight didn't reach ... We have mad several pictures of him were he fell asleep in places you normaly do not sleep, just bc we were not able to understand his signs and rhythm. When he made several yawns, you had just about 20 minutes to feed him and change clothes for bed. Otherwise he started to look for a cozy place or slept were he just was ...

Hope this helps!

I do believe that your son might be different. But to call your own son "weird" or to say he is doing something weird is not right for him. He is a little child but also a person. Treat him like a little person he just might amaze you with what is on his mind. Often times children who are different or what people call "weird" are amazingly bright and have to take time away from the world because they take in too much information. They can't handle the stress of what they see yet they can't fully comprehend.

I don't think it is anything paranormal but I do think the child is gifted in a sense that you don't hear of anyone's else's child do this. I would be fortunate if my child should signs that were not like other children. At least I would know I have someone unique in my life.

I hope he does good in his life with you OP

I think what your son is doing is perfectly normal, and something that many children and adults do. Sounds to me like he is simply thinking about things in the dark, alone so that no one disturbs him. Odds are the he realizes things about this world that he is coming to know, and just needs time to consider the possibilities. It is a little slow for him not to be putting together two word sentences at his age, but not all that unusual for a boy. He could also be experiencing psychic phenomenon. Each new generation develops new talents, and that could also be what is going on. His perspective of the world is broadening at a phenomenal rate at that age, and taking the time to absorb it all and sort through the information is probably a very good thing. As you have stated, you have already talked to a doctor about this, and the doctor felt that he was fine, so nothing to worry about, unless he displays some behavior patterns that are far more disturbing. More importantly it sounds like you are doing all the right things as a parent.

On a more serious/scientistic way ...

You might also become familiar with the fact that you have to accept you will never know why he's doing this.
Just accepting his behaviour and go with it ... as long as he does not hurt himself or others.
My nephew was never able to talk about this or explain it ... but he often told me stories and things that did happen some days later ... I always had an open heart for him, while others thought he was talking rubbish.
Children naturally do have THE CONNECTION to 'the other side'.
We all had it, we just forgot or were conditioned on other things / believes / behaviours ...
And everyone who does not know that and can accept it ... seems weird to me.

As a student of the science of the soul ...
The soul enters into the womb within the first three month of pregnancy ... and for the rest of the time of the pregnacy ... until the baby comes out of the womb the soul is safe and protected.
When the soul is born into this life the illussions start to play on the soul!

For me it's very normal that a pure soul of a child is trying to get back into natural situations of well-being (e.g. a silent, cozy and relaxing place, like they had in the womb). They / their hearts know about their light inside so the darkness outside is not scary ...
As a grown up who was never supported in the early years (simply bc my parents did not know and it was not part of the western eduction) to learn how to follow your inner instincts and listen to your own heart and the preciousness and abilities of the soul ...
I now have to learn and practice it again to bring my soul into such precious places via meditation, etc. and sometimes just be remembered about this natural state of being ...
Because our soul's always do know were they feel GO(o)D.

If you try to look at your son with an open heart and put aside your mind and all the things other grown ups say and you can exclude a serious physical illness ... by making a doctors check ...

=> Start to do something for your very own heart and soul and well-being and you can communicate with your child on this level as long as he does not speak the language of the adults ... As the mother you will always have the highest healing influence and ability towards your child in this lifetime simply because your souls are akin.

PS: Do you son a favour and do not put up a video of him in the internet. It can draw a lot of disturbing vibrations towards him and his soul ... even if you might think that's funny or helpful.

My daughter is almost 3 and does just about the same thing except in front of the televsion. She loves hide and seek and will hide nearly silent in a dark closet. I say nearly silent because the can't help but laugh while we are looking for her...

She used to stare into the distance though. It was kind of weird.

"The Elder will ask the little boy to find the Way of Life".


Are you really concerned about your little marvel or rather... of him proud ?

This Kid IS healthy : he's simply discovering the mystery of being, but while some trouble children might be scared about darkness, the little man you beared to life enjoys the only way to truly appreciated what consciousness is, that is sitting calmly, securely, - far from the speed of social frenzy.

By experience, I'd advice NOT to seek any sort of pediatric help : be careful of any man/woman WHO'S NOT WHO YOU ARE : The Mother Of This Child.

From pediatrics to psychiatry, the step is thin. And psychiatrists exist upon the idea that some people are sick, while nobody truly is.

Does your little being laugh & smile to good things in life ? Does he cry when something wrong happens to him ? If yes, as your op seems to testimonies, well, that's it for a sane psychological ground.

Why should a kid be afraid about darkness, when all begin their journey within space-time with nine months lived as so ?

You just well done what you were supposed to do : so here is he, meditating about the sweetness of live even when light does not externally shines.

Promising boy.

This behavior can also be a sign of autism, particularly since he is not verbal at his age. I would get several physicians' opinions.

Just wanted to say that you are quite possibly one of the rudest people I have met on ATS. A doctor would not be able to do anything in a situation like this other then collect your money and try to sell you the whole "autism" package.

In my opinion the child is perfectly normal. So he likes to be alone or enjoys the dark? I used to like ice cream - who cares, whatever makes him happy should be embraced. If for some reason you suspect any harm or negativity coming from such behavior, then by all means you have reason to be concerned, but for now I just think you have a wonderful child who is enjoying the vastness of the human psyche.

After reading all of the responses to this BEFORE responding, I see that you have already checked for autism and that is not the problem. Maybe everyone can stop with the "get medical attention" comments now. I agree with the previous poster who said that doctors are good for when you are hurt or have a virus. Other than that, they are pushing the drugs that they are paid to push that never seem to actually heal anyone.

Back to the question at hand. Personally I can't fall for all of the "special" or "meditative" or "seeing the other side" and all of the other psychobabble that is being spouted here. Someone mentioned sleepwalking. That seems logical to me as does the person who said that he might just be "doing his business". I have raised three children so far and each one of them preferred to be off by themselves when they were loading up their diapers. One other thing to consider is that a young child hasn't really learned the how's and why's of the world around them yet. He may be just walking into a dark room and sitting there wondering why the lights went out and realizing that the longer he sits there, the more things in the room he can make out as his eyes adjust.

Most of the time, the simplest answer is the correct one.

I have seen this exact thing before and it is nothing at all to worry about. In both cases I had seen it was merely sleepwalking.
