Q454: What is the legal age when I can leave my children home alone?

There is no legal age when a child can be left home alone and it is down to the parent/guardian/carer to make that decision. Common sense would suggest that the child would have to be of an age where they could look after themselves and that it would not be appropriate to leave a young child for long periods of time or during the night.
