DD is nearly 3 and over the last couple of days has developed a door phobia !!??

When she is out, she gets hysterical because she wants the door off/open etc... Its kind of a tantrum, but it seems like a fear ..

She is fine at home..

The only connection I can make is when I do time out I shut her in the hall way with the door shut

It could be, you could try putting her for time out with the door open, you will have to stand there though.

How about a time out bench (that can be moved)?

Just realised that didnt help!

What I meant was that you can still carry on your time out sessions but maybe somewhere else if you think closing the door on her is making her a bit anxious.
