CIO is a method used to train the child to self-soothe. If you are really letting them CIO, then usually it's just a few minutes. If you are letting them go for long periods of time, that is not CIO, that's neglect.

Those who do CIO all agree not to let the kids needs be ignored. The idea is to meet all of the child's needs. For example: A 2 yo not wanting to go to bed and you letting them cry for a few minutes after they've done everything in their normal routine is not the same thing as letting a sick 2 yo cry because you don't want to tend to them.
