What is the legal age for kids to be left home alone in Indiana?

    I believe only Maryland and Illinois have minimum age and laws on kids being home alone. For other states its very vague and the decision should be made on the child’s maturity and safety of the neighborhood versus need. While it may not be illegal to leave a kid alone, if something were to happen to the kid the parent could be found negligent — resulting in minor punishment to jail time and/or losing the child depending on the situation. Clearly leaving young children alone or in the care of other young children is negligent.

    In Indiana, I think it’s 25.
