My daughter is 12 years old and i can't get her to help out with anything around the house unless i get upset. I'm 8 1/2 months pregnant and am on meds to stop contractions and i am supposed to be taking it easy. I've asked nicely, I've cried and I've yelled nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any suggestions????

cont... if u are too ill to get up off the bed to confiscate her stuff, call a relative or neighbor to pack all her stuff bags and store it at their house in the basement.
