Barely two minutes pass in this house at present without the sound of a door slamming shut.
The boy is obsessed.
He is no longer able to sit in a room, any room, if a door is open. This is not just at home either. We had to make our excuses and leave a friend’s house earlier today as he insisted on continually slamming shut their kitchen door, thus rendering it impossible for the host to hear any further guests arriving, and despite repeated warnings from me that if it continued we would have to leave.
Only for the same to resume at home.
It is not just room doors either. Any door will do. Cupboards are good. On opening the fridge door the boy will fling himself full force against it regardless of any limbs that may become trapped in the instance.
A walk to the shops takes five times longer as EVERY gate must be shut on the way past. If it isn’t it will be after we have passed by.
I am left thinking that my only options now are to source some rather large doorstops, preferably six times the weight of a small child, or simply take all the doors off until this phase stops.
It will stop won’t it?
Has anyone else had this trouble?
Please let me know, *desperate face*.
