Did you know most states do not have a minimum age?
We just started this year after we moved to this house. The kids are 10, 9, almost 8 and 4. So far the 10yo has stayed once on her own (for a few hours...she just watched TV), the older 2 stayed once together while I took the younger 2 to the store (we were gone 2 hours because it's a long walk) and once all 4 stayed together while me and my husband walked to the store with the baby (we were gone for maybe an hour and they had my cell phone to keep in touch with us). I feel perfectly comfortable leaving them. I was staying home alone at 8 with my 6yo brother. We never did anything, just watched TV.
