A harried mother who seems visibly stressed is pushing her 3-year-old child in a grocery cart as she is selecting some healthy cereal. The child is screaming and crying that she wants Fruit Loops. The mother reacts first by telling the child to quiet down, and when the child continues to scream, the mother becomes angry and then grabs a box of Fruit Loops and throws it in the grocery cart.

Yet another might focus on the mother's anger in response to the child's (inappropriate) request for a particular breakfast food.
