I would not expect her to help to much. She still needs to be a kid, and its not her fault you go pregnant and there is no father around to help you. Remember she is only 7 and she probably doesn't want you to get mad if she tells you she doesn't want to do it anymore. Are you paying her, or is it more of a bribe? Many children are forced into being a babysitter, or maid when they are young because their parents get to involved in other stuff. She should only have basic chores and you should take more responsibility in the household. You didn't explain what you pay her to do, but if your asking her to vacuum, do laundry, wash dishes, sweep, thats to much for a 7 year old. And if your asking her to help with the baby, remember she is only 7 and she can't raise your child. Maybe you should been more cautious and not got yourself pregnant. In the end you are robbing her of her childhood. I would never make my 7 year old do a lot of chores, at that age, keeping their room cleaned, and picking up after themselves is enough.
