Legally, you're not allowed to be left alone in the house if you're under 14. So the answer is yes, it's an offense but what are they really going to do?

Well don't really balme her. Parents can be awfully protective of their kids. You never know what could happen to the kid if left alone. The kid could leave the house or get hurt orsomething, and without someone there to look after the kid, that's dangerous. I'm not saying that it's totally likely that that'll happen, but you can never leave it to chance. Thre probably is a rule in a handbook about childminding or something saying not to leave the child alone in the house.

Stop using so many "lols." It doesn't really make you sound like an adult.
