I think the advice posted makes sense. However, if your daughter is like our son, he can cry for far longer than we can handle listening. We tried sitting in a chair in his room to keep him company but would leave if he didn't stay in his bed. If he got out, we'd leave a for a bit then, if he was still crying, we'd go back in and try again. As long as he was quiet, we didn't go back in. Eventually he got the idea and would play for a bit then crawl into bed and go to sleep. Just don't give up!
