what is the legal age for a child to babysit a sibling

Hi

there i sno set legal age as such as it depends on the capability of the older child the age of the younger child and how long it is for - if it for very short periods of time then 14 might be ok, for an evening 16, foranything longer then an adult needs to have reponsibility if the parents wish to avoid any allegation of neglect
