Question: At what age is it illegal to leave a child alone
Arizona like most States do not have regulations or laws about when a child is considered old enough to care for him/herself or to care for other children. Currently Illinois and Maryland have laws addressing this topic. States may have guidelines or recommendations. These guidelines are most often distributed through child protective services and are administered at the county level.
For more information visitthe United States department of Health and Human Services.
