No. And many children need to have relaxation facilitated not just through a place, but what goes in it.

No, it is not sick to want a quiet dark room to relax in. Anything that calms you is fine - it's up to you. No, it's not weird for your mom to close the door if that's what you want her to do.

I responded before -


A fountain
A good sound system to play music or sounds
Herbs in pots around the fountain - A fan nearby to blow the smells around the room
Stuffed animals or pillows of different textures
Ceiling fans
Small fridge for drinks


Everyone needs a place that's quiet to decompress and think. Our world is a busy place and everyone needs a chance to recharge and come back refreshed. Everyone.

Nope. The only thing that really matters is what works specifically to calm YOU. If that's quiet time with a closed door, regardless of the weather, you go with that.

Hi, I'm a high functioning mom with Autism of a 13 yr old who is profoundly Autistic.

I think this depends on YOU & how you feel about it. I find sunlight to be annoying. There is a time of day; late afternoon, when I find the sun's direction, color, intensity & angle to be actually infuriating.

My son fixated on our unusually rainy weather this summer & had a meltdown at exactly 6:40am every morning when it was NOT sunny.

I got a "SADD (seasonal affective depressive disorder) lamp" for him but we haven't tried it out yet.

Does it bother you?

Sometimes, moms' don't know exactly what does bother somebody. You are good on a keyboard. Maybe you could write & tell your mom what does bother you or what does not.

I just found out that when people whistle or hum, that it bothers Luke a lot. I also just noticed that a lot of people like to whistle & hum when they are grocery shopping.

The first time he used a keyboard to write to me he said "I love you mom" but he's not ready yet to write something like "I can't stand whistling!"

You could try writing "I don't like to be shut in a closed room" if it bothers you.
