Florida Laws on Leaving Children Unattended

The state of Florida does not have a law that speciies the age at which a child may be left unattended, however, the Florida Dept. of Children and Families recommends 12 as the age. 

Importantly, Florida Statute Section 316.6135 states that children younger than 6 may not be left in an unattended vehicle for more than 15 minutes, however, if the vehicle is running or if the child could be in danger, there is no amount of time that is acceptable to leave a child there.
