But even beyond childhood, Rains's mother told her other falsehoods about pregnancy and parenting. Birth doesn't hurt that bad... Rains sets the record straight and exposes the truth about parenting, pregnancy, and, of course, giving birth. With brutal honesty and a wicked sense of humor, Rains shares her stories about her husband, their kids, and her own set of lies she passes down to them. Read It Doesn't Hurt That Bad and Other Lies My Mom Told Me for a realistic and truthful look into motherhood and all that comes with it.
