You would have to check with your local court house or police department to see if there is such a law in place. A reasonable person would assume that you wouldn't leave a 6 year old in charge, just as much as a 12 year old couldn't watch 5 children at one time. I know that it does depend on the maturity level of the teenager and the discretion of the parents.

Illinois LawIllinois is one of only two states with a law in place for this.

Preparing Children to Stay Alone (May 2001), by the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS), has the following information about the legal age to be left home alone in Illinois:What is lack of supervision?

Illinois law defines a neglected minor, in part, as "any minor under the age of 14 years whose parent or other person responsible for the minor's welfare leaves the minor without supervision for an unreasonable period of time without regard for the mental or physical health, safety or welfare of that minor."

Juvenile Court Act, 705 ILCS 405/2-3(1)(d)
