What Is The Legal Age To Leave Your Child At Home Alone?

Even though there isn’t a specific age specified in juvenile code in the state of North Carolina, there is a fire code regulation. According to North Carolina fire code, a child 8 years old and under should not be left alone without adult supervision due to the risk of a fire. Another suggestion is the child maturity level. The child may be old enough to stay home alone according to the fire code regulation, but may not be mature enough to stay alone and may not be mature enough to care for younger siblings.
