The age at which it is considered safe to leave children alone at home varies depending on the country and state. In general, children under the age of 12 should not be left alone for extended periods of time. It is important to consider the maturity and responsibility level of the child, as well as the safety of the environment they will be left in, before making a decision. It is always best to err on the side of caution and consult with legal authorities or parenting experts if you have any doubts.
