What do I do now?

A curated collection of real stories with real advice

This is the cry of new parents alone with their child for the first time, daunted by the responsibility, and the fear of not getting it right.

It is the pain of the parent who cannot understand why their colicky baby will just not settle. It is the voice of the mother whose seven-month-old cries all night and calls for her hourly. It is the expression of the father unable to stop the two-year-old temper tantrum in the supermarket, no matter what he tries.

“WHAT DO I DO NOW?” is the expression identified with the stress and struggle of parenting. It is a cry to get help – to take the stress out of parenting.

This book is the answer to that cry.

Real advice for real families

"Dr Leon gets to the bottom of what makes parents worry, and instantly puts you at ease."

His debut book covers topics such as:
