Legally, it depends upon your state... many states do not have any law about this, including mine. Some do have a law saying they must be anywhere from 9-12yrs. old to stay home alone.
If your state doesn't have a law about this, then I would say it depends upon the maturity of the child and what you are comfortable with. My oldest is almost 9 and I have not let him stay at home alone yet, but he keeps asking when he will be allowed to. (Many of his friends already do.) I think that maybe in the next year or so I would be okay with it for short periods of time (like 15-30mins.) He is a responsible, cautious kid though and we live in a safe town.
