Hi all, I began babysitting at the age of 12. It was just for 2 of the kiddies that lived across the street from me. I see nowadays that some babysitters are only 10-11....just seems a bit young to me, (unless they are just older siblings and mom or dad need to run to the store really quick for something.) What age would you consider "safe" to be a responsible babysitter? And what age would you feel most comfortable with when it comes to babysitting your little one(s)?
