Q. In Alaska, are you allowed to spank your child? In public?


Dear Juneau Resident,

Spanking as discipline is legal in Alaska. The law does not change based on the parties being in public or private. This does not mean child abuse is legal. Beating a child is never acceptable and should be reported. If you see something that concerns you, definitely report the incident to JPD at 586-0600.
