What would you like to do?
There is no law on age in Utah. Is the child safe? Does the child feel safe? Do they know what to do if there is a problem? Most authorities believe that 12 or 13, and not a sibling, is old enough to be trusted with younger children for short periods of time during the day. If they have proper training it helps.

Answer . I am an officer of 12 years, to my knowledge there is not a strict law of a certain age to babysit in Tennessee. As I know, the average age is 11-12 years. My 12 y…ear old son started babysitting my 3 year old daughter when he was 11. He is very responsible and he said it was easy. I think that children should be trusted with younger SIBLINGS at that age, not strangers kids. I found that my daughter loved it when she was babysat by him. 16 years old The legal age of baby-sitting is 12 for 3-4 hours
There isn't a 'legal' age. It's pretty much whatever the parents want. That if, of course, if you are just watching kids for a family you know. However, if you want to g…et a job at a child care place, then it depends on the place itself
There is no 'legal age' in Wyoming, it has not been legislated.. Most authorities believe that 12 or 13 can handle another younger child for short periods of time during the …day. Other factors include the individual's maturity, the relationship with the other child (siblings can be harder to handle!), the neighborhood and even the time of day.
Answer . There isn't one. Illinois and Maryland are the only two states that have legislated leaving children home alone and what ages are required to take care of them.
The legal age to babysit in Idaho is 11, although the minimum age differs from state to state. And remember, 11 is a minimum age, and the maturity of the babysitter should alw…ays be considered, no matter what the age.
Twelve. I read it somewhere...
i am pretty sure the age dosent matter but of couse it wont be someone like 7 years old but it depends on howw responsible u are ____________________________________________…______________ i live in half way between Toronto and niagara falls, and there is no legal age, but you must be over 8. also, i suggest not babysitting completely alone for more then an hour until you are at least 10 or 11. however, if you're 9-11, i suggest babysitting kids between 3 or 4 and 7. i started babysitting at 9.
the legal age to leave your child at home alone is13 so i would assume babysitters must be at least this age
10 and on but age 9 and under isn't exceptable because their the ones who should be babysat not babysitting!
