Ask The Expert: My Teenage Child Won’t Leave Her Area

Dear Your Child:

My child stays inside her space for hours. She switched 13 and began everyone that is asking our house to knock in the home before entering. That is a new comer to us. How does my teenager remain in her space? Is this normal? Should we be concerned she desires therefore much privacy? And exactly how much is too much? Thanks!
