Re: how do you get your 3 year old to sleep?

My 3 yr old son was doing this awhile ago too. We decided to try a reward chart and it worked really well. If he stayed quietly in bed after we had said our goodnights, he'd get a sticker on a wall chart. Once he got 7 stickers, he got to go pick some candy at the store. After a couple of weeks with the chart, he was going to sleep easily again. My son was so happy to just get a sticker on his chart that I don't think the candy part was necessary but we did it anyway since that's what we initially told him we were going to do. Maybe some kind of reward system would work for your dd too.
