I have almost 4 year old that won't sleep in her own bed. She shares a room with her younger sister of 17 months. Her younger sister sleeps in her own bed. Any suggestions? We need help.

l have a four year old and a five year old-both girls -who still dont like to sleep in there own bed. they even share a room. I got an idea off The Supper Nanny tv show. She suggested sitting in the room away from them but reassuring them that your still in the room. when they get up calmly put them back in bed no matter how many times it takes or how long or how much they cry. The fist night may take a while but it should take less time every night. I actually tried this and am dertermined to stick with it. It does actually work. Eventually you should not have to stay in there at all. (we haven't gotten that far yet, but we will) They know we love them and are not abandoning them at night.
