"What does Woman want?" It depends on the woman. Duh.

"Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Not necessarily.

"You need to work through the pain." No. If it hurts, quit.

There's no proverb for this, but there's a widespread belief that only a child's parents may correct a child. I say phooey. If your child is in danger or is hurting someone, I will do something. That's what grown-ups are supposed to do.
