Q. What are the laws regarding a person under 21 drinking alcohol under parental supervision in the parents home?


Dear Juneau Resident,

A parent can give an underage person alcohol in the home and supervise the young person in the home. There are limits, of course. Letting a young person have a glass of wine with a spaghetti dinner is different than letting the young person do shots, or do shots with the parent, and becoming dangerously intoxicated. A parent can still get into the reckless endangerment area if he or she goes overboard. Also, letting the child's friends come over and drink, which does happen, will also get the parent into trouble.
