Technically it is not, because the child is a minor.Another View; The age of the "minor" and the state of residence would have to be known in order to answer.

The state of Alaska does not have a latchkey law. This means there is no legal age at which a child can be left home alone. It is however not recommended that a child under age 12 be left alone without a parent or guardian present.

The legal age for children in order for them to stay home alone is only regulated in Maryland and Illinois. There is no age requirement as to when a child in DC would be able to stay home unattended. Parents and caregivers should take into consideration the maturity level of the child before deciding if they should be left home alone.

The legal check is whether or not the child is safe and has the ability to take care of themselves. Most authorities agree that leaving a 12 year old alone at home for an hour or two is acceptable, but they should not be responsible for other children.
