The child's mother posted on the restaurant's Facebook page.
Despite the controversy, Neugebauer told WCSH , "Life's full of choices and you've got to live with all of them. I chose to yell at the kid. It made her shut-up, which made me happy. It made my staff happy. It made the 75 other people dining here happy, and they left. They may never come back, other people may not come in. Their loss really."
The family told WCSH that the incident left the family stunned and upset.
Tara Carson said she told her daughter, "This is how I'm raising you not to be as an adult."
She continued, saying, "I felt helpless as a mom that, you know, I couldn't do anything to help her, because I can't explain why there's crazy people in the world that behave like that."
