The question- how to wash children's clothes?- becomes a huge problem for young mothers.

  • Dashes, commas or brackets would be fine. The interrogative clause "how to wash children's clothes" is a supplement, a semantically non-restrictive interpolation here which has the NP "the question" as its semantic anchor. – BillJ Mar 14 '18 at 8:03
  • Why not "The question of how to wash children's clothes becomes a huge problem for young mothers." ? – Kris Mar 14 '18 at 9:13
  • Your dashes are fine (use the em-dash if you are able to) and so are quote marks, for example. The question 'How to wash children's clothes ?' becomes a huge problem. – Nigel J Mar 14 '18 at 12:00
  • Please be very careful about the enormous difference between “the question of how to wash children’s clothes” and anything which might become a problem for young mothers. They are quite different. – Robbie Goodwin Mar 27 '18 at 22:13
