What I did with my son was promise him he could pick out a big boy bed if he learned to sleep alone in his bed. My mistake was letting him pick out from a wide range of beds. I figured he would pick a car bed that turned from a toddler bed to a twin bed. NO...he picked the Step2 Ladder bed from walmart. It costs $300 plus another $40 for the bunkie board. He is trying real hard to fall asleep alone because he really wants that bed....now mommy has to keep her end of the deal. LOL  Maybe you could do something like that. Give her a goal. She learns to sleep in her bed (and stay there all night) and she can have a new bed or a toy she's been really really wanting.

My son can fall asleep on the couch, but once its 10p, he has to go to his room. He always come down at night and I can't seem to get up and take him back upstairs. I'm thinking of baby-gating his room so he can't get out at night.atleast for two weeks so he learns to stay in there.

 I dont have this problem with my kids but my god daughter had this problem. go to walmart or what ever let her pick out a toddler bed they take crib mattresses. Have the bed in your room slowly push it out the door to her room. she will fall a sleep easly in her bed.

At night or even during the day when i lay them down. I dont make them stay in bed they are not allowed to leave there room. I put in a movie when its off its off. Everyone falls asleep at diff times some days are rougher then others. But that is what we do.

good luck

This but he's down to three days a week. And we really don't care on the weekends cuz he sleeps in.

I dont let our kids sleep in bed with us unless they are sick. I know it may sound mean but we put up a baby gate in the doorway. That way she can keep the door open but she still has to stay in her room

I am no help but I will give you a bump. I have an 8 and a 2 yr old, and they are both in their own rooms. Believe me, I would rather have my 2 yr old in our room but it just doesnt make for very comfortable sleeping and there is no privacy like that. Good luck.
