12 and up preferably and they don't ask you things like "Did you leave food and an emergency number", anything over 12 and they say nothing...

Hi I just got a hold of family services and a lawyer to find the answer to the legal babysitting age... I was told 16 years of age is the legal age to allow a teenager to babysit... Personally I think 13 or 14 years should be the age allowed as long as the maturity level is acceptable. Just thought I would share...
