New bill looks to lower the ‘home alone’ age in Illinois

The legal age to leave your child home alone in Illinois could soon drop. Lawmakers are introducing what they call the “babysitting bill” in an effort to help parents cope with the pandemic. The laws for latchkey kids in Illinois are among the strictest in the nation. The age limit for most states is between 8 and 12 years old, if there’s an age limit set at all. In Illinois, the age is 14. Caption: WICS.
