EMS3931 answered Friday June 16 2006, 4:12 am:
it depends. if a kid is babysitting their brother/sister they can start at an earlier age (around 11 and 12 and for 3-6 hours) if a is babysitting a kid thats not in their family than 13 and up.

I started when I was 11 turning 12.

I think when you hit puberty, and you're going through changes, and when you come to realize that you need to be more mature, and that you are growing up.

xotgrace answered Monday May 29 2006, 2:08 pm:
I wouldn't say there's an exact age ;; because there's some pretty immature 15 year olds. It all depends how trustworthy you are. Most believe around 12 or 13, but i started around 10 or 11.

GirlOfEmotions answered Tuesday May 23 2006, 11:30 pm:
People say thirteen because that's the turning point for maturity, but i guess kids in OUR generation are much more lazier and have lack of responsibility than they did back then; when even 10 year olds believed that changing diapers at their age was normal. but over the age of 13 is an acceptable age to start babysitting.

itsz_JESS answered Tuesday May 23 2006, 10:14 pm:

Colinsbabiii4ever1 answered Tuesday May 23 2006, 4:16 pm:
I started when I was 13 but they usually pay when a 13 year old babysits around 5-10 dollars...but that's just because of the age difference once you grow up the amount goes up..I hope that works..

Most people say around 12 or 13. But for me, it would be when you're ready & can show responsabilty.

I started babysitting when I was 12 or 13. I think that is a normal age. Also, babysitting classes are offered around that age so kids are able to get a certificate to show that they know CPR and that sort of stuff. Hope this helps.

mmrz28 answered Tuesday May 23 2006, 3:01 am:
you can start babysitting when you are twelve years old. some people go and get a certificate to show you are truly a really trained baby sitter.

AnGeLs_AdVicE_x3 answered Tuesday May 23 2006, 2:44 am:
Basically, you can start baby sitting at whatever age you think you're ready. If your mature enough to handle a young person and take responsibility for all of their actions then you're ready. The thing is you have to remember that you are in charge of the person's life. Once you think you can handle then then your ready.

P.S. if you're not sure then try baby sitting with a friend frist!


Hope I Helped!

MHScutie87 answered Monday May 22 2006, 1:27 am:
I would say about 12. But, it really depends on the person and the age of the child your babysitting. Some people mature mentally faster than others.

good luck- :)
