  • I agree that depends on the child. My little sister is 12 years old and I wouldn't even leave her alone let alone with another child. But she is the type that could get in real trouble fast.

  • it really depends on the situation and the kids...

  • depends on the kid. When I was 12 I babysat my brother and some other kids in the neighborhood. But I know other 12 year olds that couldn't handle watching other kids.

  • ditto what the others said. My dd started watching her little brother at 13 and he was 11. I worked in the same city and went home for lunch everyday. How far are you from the house?
