Let the house fall apart and see if he notices? Then when he wonders why, you could ask for his help? My sister tried this (she called it, going on strike) and it worked for her. Sometimes things have to hit rock bottom before it gets better.

It's a tough situation to be honest. You cant make ppl do something they dont want. And if he doesnt care that the house is falling apart and that the kids are suffering in the meantime then that makes it harder on your end to prove a point.

Maybe if you asked him specific tasks to do? Some ppl need specific direction.
