Send them to Alanon or ACOA, and then try to keep your hands off. You can't "deal" with people. You make suggestions, and they either follow them or they don't. If they are unwilling to make the changes they need to make, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

So if you want to be a part of his life, do your best to include the child. You don't get him without the child, it's a part of him. If you can't handle the child in your life, or you don't feel you're ready to be a parent to that child, this relationship isn't the best idea. A child needs stability.
