I does depend on the maturity of the child. But these days aren't like the 60's or 70's. I wouldn't even trust the maturity of a 16 or 17 year old.

I remember being 11 and home with my siblings to cook dinner for the family and watch my baby brother. Cloth diapers and all. lol

I always thought it was 12. My family waited until I was 12, and that's what we did with our son. I can understand the case by case situation...you leave them when you feel they can handle being alone for a bit
