No, your parents are not responsible. You will not be held in contempt if you have no funds to pay. You should try to pay something.
Only the Court can sentence you to jail not your ex. Pay something each month more than zero, do the best you can so you will not be in contempt.
Don't listen to your ex. You should pay something in the way of support. Also you should file a modification so the arreages don't continue to build. Best Wishes
