Do you have to be licensed to babysit and how old do you have to be to be able to babysit?
you have to take some classes to be paid by government and family for baby sitting. and the age is usually 13-14-retirement
It probably depends on what state your in, but I have heard laws that if the parent considers you "responsible" you could do it earlier than ten years old. Honestly though, I'd recommend at least first aid.
It depends on the state. Where I live you are allowed only 6 children counting your own in your house. Just check with your state.
