What Age Can You Leave Your Kid Home Alone In Maine?
Good question...and Maine does have an answer.
There is no age requirement. In fact, Maine is in the majority with 34 states having no age requirement to stay home alone.
I was a latchkey kid and was off the bus home alone around 7-years-old. But now days, it appears parents may be more protective. In Maine, it all depends on the kid, close by supervision and access to a phone.
How old were your kids when you finally left them alone? How old were YOU when YOU were left alone?
