I'm trying to find out what age it is LEGAL for a child to be home alone for LESS than 30 minutes, with access to both parent's phone numbers of course? My oldest is almost 12, and doesn't always want to go with me when I have to go pick my hubby up from work. We live on an military base in base housing, and my hubby works like 10 minutes away, and my child is extremely responsible for an almost 12 year old, but I am unsure of the rules with that. Don't want to do ANYTHING illegal to get my hubby in trouble lol! BTW that would be the only occasion for being home alone is for me to run to pick up my hubby and be back within 20 minutes.
