I would say probably no younger than 13. And that's if they are mature/responsible enough to be left alone at that time.

I say the best age for our dd will be around 15 years old.  At that age I can test to see how well i can trust her alone.  Never failed this test with my mom.

I will not allow any of my kids ( I have 3- the boys are 4 & 7 and my little girl is 2) to be by them selves until they are 16.  No dating, group dating or just hanging out until 16. It was good enough for me it is good enough for them.  They will not be allowd to go anywhere with out a trusted adult with them at all times.

Probably 13 but more than likely i would just take him with me. I really have no need to leave him home alone.

Only 15 or 20 minutes?  I believe 12 is the legal age where I'm at.
