AnswerThe ages at which children can be left unattended vary by state, so the answer depends on where the children live. For example, here in Florida there is no minimum age. All that's required is that the children's' welfare isn't jeopardized and that they're sufficiently cared for and in no danger. AnswerIn Canada it's 12 years old.
