Answer There are very few states in the U.S. with legal minimum ages, but many state agencies have published guidelines (Georgia, Illinois, Maryland and Oregon are a few of the states with very specific ages). Oregon states that 10 years old is the minimum age. Typically 8 year olds and over can be left at home for up to several hours (usually after school before a parent gets home from work).
