You can't change a man child just offer consistent boundaries. You can offer consistent boundaries that say this is what I expect between you and child. If doesn't hold up his end, then you have to allow him to be a part time parent. Because he is the one losing out. Be the dependable parent as you have done so far. As far as his speaking to you, let that unfold naturally. If it doesn't happen then it doesn't happen. You can't make him responsible. You can expect his behavior to not change and carry on without his help or his assistance. It's not fair but it's honest. Then you won't be disappointed
