In S.C. a child as young as nine can be left home alone, the "Catch-22" is that if something happens and the child is injured, the parent or guardian can still face charges. Charges can be brought if it is proven the child was left in a dangerous or unsafe environment, which cover such things as no access to a phone or safe adult contact in case of emergency, left in a house where there were guns, access to alcohol, no adequate food supply (how that is defined is a mystery), and so forth.

In the state of South Carolina, you can legally leave your parents house without consent when you reach the age of majority. In South Carolina that is age 18.

The court system in the state of South Carolina makes the decision which parent a minor child is to live with. At the age of 12, the court will take into consideration the child's wishes regarding which parent the child will live with.

{| |- | No she can't leave home, have a child does not make one an adult. The parents are still responsible for the minor and her well being. Being able to have a child does not mean one can take care of the child. You still must be 18 to be considered an adult. |}
