    Unfortunately, you may have been busy with two new babies while he was a teen and needed you to be there for him. He may not be willing to forgive you for the mistakes you made in the past. If that's the case, then you'll just have to accept it.

    Ask my ex boyfriend's mother - she parented him until he was 59. Then she died. No idea who he's depending on now.

    It was a pathetic situation

    Sounds like it's too toxic on both sides to have a relationship.

    He should be a parent already. He should be parenting himself

    You shouldn't even be trying to parent a 43 year old.

    Not at all, unless he asks for your help?

    In the same way as you have done in the past 43 years.
