Your son is probably walking in his sleep as some children and adults do during times of stress or overstimulation. As far as the talking is concerned, I have been told I did not speak until I was 3 and have been talking a "blue streak" ever since! Sounds like you have a very normal child who gets what he wants without talking.

I wouldn't worry about it. Kids at this age like to hide. Under tables, in boxes, etc.
This may be a cozy spot for him. He may not be playing or sleeping, but he may be chilling out. My son will just chill out with a blanket. Could be the 2 y.o. version of mediation.

Like the PP said, if you son is not talking yet, he may be observing a lot of things and is creating some down time to absorb it all.

I was like that when I was a kid, I loved my personal closed spaces where no one could bug me...though I probably did play in that place, not just sit and do nothing...but yeah, my guess is that its ok.

i actually made an account just to reply to this, as i know you're probably pretty worried as to what's up with your kid. i hope this helps.

i'm 24 now, i'm a boy. i used to do this a LOT when i was a kid. sometimes i even started doing it during the day when i was older, what a lot of people refer to as "zoning out," however i wouldn't say it was the same as most people experience.

what exactly was i doing? i remember vividly although it is difficult to put into words. i can tell you this however... my IQ is very high, when i was 16 i graduated high school and my mom made me take an IQ test at the huntington learning center and i did really well. i have no problems socially, i'm artistic and very creative as opposed to formulaic and mathematic (for lack of a better word).

i vaguely remember it being different things, but always enjoying the time i spent "inside my own head." the reason i vouched for myself so highly is in an attempt to calm your mind, you have nothing to worry about. chances are he's going to turn out just fine. sometimes i would just be imagining things quietly, other times even stranger things would take place in my head that i can remember but this thread is neither the time nor the place. contact me if you want more info but i just wanted to reassure you from someone who has experienced this chances are your kid is going to be just fine.

ps - also this was usually accompanied by a ringing in my head that no one else was ever able to hear. it was very high pitched, and i still get it sometimes. i have more info on this phenomenon as well, if needed.

My mother says I used to go inside the cuboard/closet when I was around that age 2-3, and just sat there or talked to myself.

I don't know why thou.

Could be many reasons, I do know that when I was young, a lot of my "play" time was mostly using my imagination, so who knows, he could be sitting there imagining things for fun???

This is starting to sound like Crystal/Rainbow children. You would do nicely to Google that term, along with Indigo Children, and read up on some of what's being said about this new generation of kids. They're sensitive, and a bit telepathic, and quite empathic too.

Also, get the DVD of "Indigo" by Neale Donald Walsch, which is a really well-done piece. I also recommend another called "The Indigo Evolution". These two won't answer every question, but will definitely give you some killer insight.

I've seen little ones (mine are 4 and 7) doing lots of unusual stuff. But at the same time, they are often very loving and really forgiving....a new paradigm to come, perhaps ?

My 7-year old loves to have me hold him, and he'll peer deeply into my eyes, saying nothing all the while, but it's almost like "he knows all". It's all on a subconscious level, but I know what he was doing. At 7, he's a bit more Indigo than Crystal/Rainbow, but more likely cuspal, which gives him a unique double perspective.

Yours may be communicating with angels, whether he realizes it or not, or whether he vocalizes it or not. That's a "pure age", as it were. Plus, its been said that today's new kids don't start talking as soon as you or I may have, but they seem to have a keen sense of telepathy, especially between mother and child. We dads, well....not so often or as much.

So.....chew on all that and see what becomes of it.

I did this same thing. He needs to detach from the frantic and confusing world. He's thinking and reflecting.

Just keep your loving eye on him, hold him and sing to him. He'll be ok and will soon start telling you (his Mother) what's going on.

He's got the potential of being a Prophet in the way that term is used in Torah. So maybe you can read some of it to him.

All the best from Israel...

That's the sound that only a Human being can hear. The Hindus call it OM. In Torah, it's "the still small voice". Along with that golden light you see when you're in a totally dark space, it's the essential energy that keeps you alive every moment of every day and night. It's your connection with the Creator. Enjoy.

It is perfectly normal, your son may not speak until he is even 5 years old, but when he does, it will be in complete sentences. My guess would be that he is very intelligent. But on the bad side he may have a a social phobia and/or be narcissistic.

noun 1. inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity.
2. Psychoanalysis. erotic gratification derived from admiration of one's own physical or mental attributes, being a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development.

1. self-centeredness, smugness, egocentrism

Hi OP , just joined today to answer your question,

First though remember to not worry . After all we are talking about a 2 year old child here & anyone with experience of children knows how different & similar they can be.

I can't believe some people want to try and scare you with ridiculous notions of what if's? and could be's?

As a parent I understand why you took him to the doctors , autism is a serious thing & best to be caught as soon as possible. However , after knowing is he not at risk why would you want to push more tests upon him?

I am not going to say its bad or wrong , but young children often establish a "safe or comfortable" zone. So no wonder why if someone "invades" it he snaps out of it and leaves.

Bottom line is , is he healthy? if yes.. they be happy you have a beautiful young son & realise everyone has their little things.. this is just his for now.

I think your boy might be exploring the world of his subconscious. When we attempt to do it as adults we call it meditation and dreaming. One can only speculate what's really going on in your son's mind but I might guess that he's enjoys being in his dream state. So much so that he'll make time for a 'time out' and go visit dream-land at odd hours.

I imagine he likes the tent and closet and feels safe there. I think the need for privacy is innate in all of us and you should respect that privacy so long as he's not doing anything harmfully erratic. There may be no need to on your part, but I'd be curious how he might behave around other kids. Perhaps you can leave him with another family or try leaving him with a daycare for a few hours each day and see what the reaction is. If there's a desire to communicate with the other kids his speech patterns might progress accordingly, with increasing complexity.

In a new environment with no "safe" place to go to maybe the habit will break. On the other hand maybe he'll try to find a new "safe" place. If that happens, hopefully his language skills will progress to where you can talk to him about it. I think a new environment might be the ticket. It could be something as simple as going to the park or somewhere peaceful, or riding on the back of a bike with you. You could probably use the exercise anyway, right?

BTW, spinning around in circles, rocking, running, driving a car, riding a bike, skiing, flying, all these things stimulate the inner ear and cause some level of dizziness - and many of us find some pleasure in it - so why should that make a young kid any different?

What kid has never spun around in circles until they were so dizzy they couldn't even stand? If you never did, then you're the strange one if you ask me.

Thanks for clarifying this ...

I realized after reading through this thread that everone contributes their very own piece of experience, knowledge and opinion ... and you have to sort (literally) thru a lot of 'scary **it' here; beside also some very constructive posts I enjoyed to read ... mostly because they where in tune what I was feeling about your incident and had no further muse to put it into words. I hope everything is and will be fine with your son and am looking forward to get a positive feed here from you from the doctors appointment you mentioned to have today. That all the scary issues of can be ruled out ...

Remember that

"The only constant in life is change" &

"Whenever you experience the paradox / a contradiction, you are in contact with the divine."

And the changes every goes thru ... re-experiencing with a child growing up will hopefully help develope towards
ALL THE VERY BEST for you and your son!

Hi everyone, I took my son to the doctor today (for reasons not related to this) and I just wanted to update everyone who has been following this thread and who has shown a great deal of caring for my son. So I took him to the doctor and no he does not have autism and no he is not having seizures, thank god. With the talking thing, my dad said that maybe he needs to get his ears flushed and he will hear better, therefore talk better. So I talked to the doctor about that and no he does not need to get his ears flushed, he does have some liquid behind his ears (mucus behind his eardrum), possibly from a cold that he had. But my doctor referred us to an oncologist just to make sure his hearing is ok (he passed the newborn hearing test but hasn't had a recent one). So yes my son is "normal" and he doesn't have any serious illnesses. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has given me advice and information and thank you for caring about my sons well being.

Hi hawaiigurl,
glad to read that
and that your son is well. Concerning the "normal" thing ... *hmmmm* I tend to believe we are all Divine Beings/Essence in human form and it's one great thing about Gods (or whoever you believe is the creator of ...) amazing creation IS that noone is like the other (think about fingerprints, etc.) and it's up to us how we handle the fact that everyone is kinda "special", but also stay "down to earth" ... if you know what I mean?

If you as a parent ever want to look, apply and keep up the mostly considered not so normal (spiritual, god given) abilities we had/have (bc you mentioned an interest in psychics) I could heartfully recommend to have a look into this book (as a starter):
The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding Your Children to Success and Fulfillment

I've been watching this thread,hoping you would reply, I am sitting here with a big smile on my face, I'm very glad I was wrong and he is okay and nothing is seriously wrong.

I keep being accused here of trying to scare you, but that was never my goal or intent. I hope you, (really don't care what anyone else thinks) realize that.

Your son seemed to have three symptoms of autism so I was concerned and felt that you needed to find out for sure, since as I said, there is a window of opportunity that makes a big difference in these children't lives. If your son did indeed have autism, I did not want him to miss this window of opportunity and knew that if I were the mother I would want someone to tell me.

Anyway I am very happy to know everything is okay. I'm sure you was beyond thrilled and relieved. I've never been so happy to be wrong before. LOL

I was thinking autism as well goose but thankfully that wasnt the deal. OP this is a very interesting case, but it is probaly nothing.. When I was younger, about 3 or 4, I would walk out of my house on full moons to just look at the moon ,sometimes even howl at it, I would walk the empty streets without fear in the silent dark then I would head back home and silently creep back into my racecar bed.. My parents never found out about my nightly excursions. Your son is active so its not anything to worry about if he likes to relax in a dark closet or his tent. Alot of us here did strange things as children. sooner or later he'll get through this phase.
