In the UK, there is no legal law that states a teenager of any age cannot babysit. However, for the most part, parents do not let children under 12 years of age babysit.

There is no legal minimum age for babysitting in the UK. You must use common sense when deciding who to leave your children with, and this usually means the babysitter should be aged over 14, or ideally 16 or more There is also no legal minimum age that a child can be left alone at home, although endangering a child by leaving them unattended is an offence. NSPCC guidelines recommend most children under 13 should not be left home alone for unnecessary amounts of time.
