Child keep staying in own bedroom for long hours

Helping a friend to seek advice from fellow ksp.

Her 14 yo like to close himself in his own bedroom, except meal time and go to school. The moment he reach home he would close himself in his own room and dislike people to approach him. Any advise what could went wrong and how to cheer up the child and open up his mind.

Thanks all for responding.

Check with my friend...

Only his handphone is in the room. It seems he does not want to be disturbed, but he wants the door to be closed at all time and sometime window curtain also closed. Both friend and dh very worried and not sure if this is temperory and will out grown soon, or has the teen developed some psychological problem? din want to talk much also when try to chat with.. But how to find out ??

Try getting his closed friends if know any. Friends easier to speak to.

if cannot then get relatives or teachers.
