I think they should be able to but the way kids are raised now a days most aren't mentally or emotionally ready to be alone at 10 because they are so sheltered and catered to.
My oldest is 10 and has spent several afternoons alone while we ran errands with the other kids and twice all 3 of the older kids (10, 9 and almost 8) stayed home alone, once with the 4yo, too, while I went to the store. My kids are very independent and have been learning how to take care of themselves and be responsible since they were toddlers. I trust them and know they can handle being alone for a few hours if need be. They actually behave better when I'm not here because they don't want to lose the privilege.
