We painted our daughter's room 12 days ago with latex interior semi-gloss red paint from Wal-Mart, and we still have enough fumes that she can't sleep in her room.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we can do?

If it is just the normal paint smellkind of smell you may just need to open the windows for a day or two. If you don't have enough air movement the odor can hang around for a while.

That is pretty typical,ive noticed reds and browns seem to do this more because of the bases and pigments added to it.
Use a fan make sure door is open to that room at all times and if possible keep a window open in their.(depending where you live like where im at impossible at 10 below.)
