Best Answer

Only two states have legislated a specific age to leave a child home alone, Illinois and Maryland. Generally speaking, the child must be safe, must feel safe, and know how to take care of themselves in an emergency. Most places believe that 12 or 13 is okay to leave home alone for a couple of hours during daylight hours.

What is legal age a child can be left alone overnight in Indiana?

Residents of Indiana who have a child should know the state does not have an age minimum for leaving your child home alone. However, it is important to consider the exact length of your trip as well as how responsible your child is before deciding whether or not they can handle this responsibility.
