Can you babysit when you're 12 years old?

According to CPS (child protective services), the legal "latchkey" age for children to be home alone during daylight/business hours is as young as 8 years old. The legal age for a child to babysit his/her own siblings during any time, but not overnight, is 11 years old. The legal age for a child to babysit children who are not siblings is 12 years old.
