Young adult novel filter: A child visits a place (house? castle? other world?) and gets stuck in time there. Eventually he goes back and visits his parents, who are horrified that he has stayed the same age.

If I remember correctly, every day there is a year in the real world (but it could've been every week there is a year or something like that). When he goes back, his parents think it is some kind of sick joke (since they have aged many years and he appears the same age).
I read it around 6th grade, I think, so it should be around that level.
