It is not illegal to spank your child in California. The spanking, however, cannot be excessive and must be for disciplinary reasons. Excessive or unreasonable spanking could lead to accusations of child abuse, the opening of a juvenile dependency case, and the filing of criminal charges. Many studies have shown that physical punishment — including spanking, hitting and other means of causing pain — can lead to increased aggression, antisocial behavior, physical injury and mental health problems for children.
So what is child abuse? Physical Hitting, shaking, kicking, pinching, slapping, throwing, hair pulling, and burning the child with scalding water or other hot objects. Spanking or paddling isn't considered abuse as long as it is reasonable and does not cause any injury to the child. Originally Answered: Is it illegal to hit a parent?
