I just turned 20 and have a 2 year old daughter, Jaylin. I am in my 1st year of college and am doing night classes. My boyfriend, Brett, is 22 and lives with his mom, I live with my sister in a small apartment. My boyfriend refuses to help with Jaylin. He'll visit her and all... once in a blue moon, but I am afraid he is more interested in me. He mostly ignores Jyalin and when he comes over he tells her to shut up and stuff. I tell him to stop but he just says stuff like, "Cool it" or "I got this" or "who said you were in charge?". Im so tierd of this, how do I get him to stop? I feel like I am at fault.

Stop having him come to your house. Let him take his child to his house instead - allow him time with his child without you around. He can't step up and be a dad to his child with you around - he needs the chance to prove himself.

I'm not sure what you mean by "refuses to help". Do you mean child support? File for it.
