i agree with the above

my son would always have to have all the doors shut... now he is almost 6 and is no longer like that...

I think of everything as a phase... like for my son right now he has to go to chuck e cheese every day and the car wash and to Tim Hortons for a choc chip cookie

things are constantly changing for them

It may be something as simple as he saw something on TV that scared him and he is reacting to that.
