My 5 year old like to hide under the bed and takes her toys there to play. She Also likes to make a bed and hide in the closet. Sometimes she changes her clothes in those places too.....Is this Normal? Should I be concern? Is it because she is an only child?

  • I wouldn't be concerned- I myself did this a lot as a child. As to whether it's because she's an only child, I don't know... although I was until I was 9.
