Sir, I'm sorry. I just wasn't paying attention to where I was going.
Hey, kid! What's your problem? You ruined our picture!
I am fairly upset that he got in the way of our picture, but how can I exercise self-control in this situation?
Oh, that's right! I can use the traffic light model! Firstly, I should stop and simply consider my options. I could yell at this child, do absolutely nothing, notify his parents, or be assertive and resist my husband's actions. Yelling at this child would likely not be a good choice - after all, he already does seem fairly upset. Doing nothing would simply prolong my husband's verbal abuse.
I now feel more relaxed but could give my impulses and nerves a bit more time to settle as I consider my two remaining options. Informing his parents would simply worsen the situation and cause them to grow angry at us for now making him cry - especially over something small. Although siding with this stranger could anger my husband, it is the best choice that I can now make.
Honey, STOP IT! He's a kid, and you've made him cry! It's alright if he got in our way - we can always take another picture! There's no need to yell at him or notify his parents of what he did. Just let it go...
Honey, it's alright. I know that you didn't mean to walk into our picture on purpose. Just make sure to pay attention to where you're going in the future. I'd like to apologize for my husband's yelling and impulsive behavior.
