But Why? covers a wide range of topics including bodies, bullying, mental health, sexuality, money and social media.

It's a book that aims to help parents tackle those awkward questions that can floor the best of us. Imagine the scene: you're trying to put the kids to bed, your brain has checked out for the day and suddenly, from nowhere, all manner of unrelated but potentially important questions are flung into the night-time routine as you're trying to get them to brush their teeth properly:

* But why are parents ruining the planet?
* But why don't boys wear dresses?
* But why do people get married?
* But why do we have feelings?
* But why don't I look like everyone else?
* But why do you have to work?

With a foreword by leading psychotherapist Anna Mathur (author of Mind Over Mother) this book is informed by a huge, varied body of research. Including conversations with experts via Clemmie's popular Honestly Podcast, the insight of300-plus contributors to Clemmie's blog 'Mother of All Lists', bravely sharing first-hand accounts, and of course Clemmie's own experience as a mother of three.

Clemmie describes this book as an 'existential crisis' which found her challenging everything she thought she knew about everything (but in a good way).

It can't promise definitive answers, but it will give you a wealth of ideas to draw upon, along with tips on how to explore the topics mindfully, pointers on where to seek more information and, perhaps most importantly, a reminder of what you absolutely should avoid saying to your kids even if you are knackered or have been caught off-guard.

Clemmie says 'I hope the book will act as a catalyst for our own thoughts on a range of subjects, giving us the opportunity to have honest conversations with ourselves about important topics such as race, gender, sexuality, politics and religion.'
