If your in Washington state then he has to be 12 and up. But you need to know that in an emergancy he will do the right thing.I would'nt let him babisit a girl until he showed true responsebility.boys tend to act on impulse
( sometimes).You need to have a case of emergancy,3 back up #s in case someone steps out and ca'nt be reached.He also can take a first aide babisitters class.look on line in your town for teen babisitting classes.or ask the YWCA d they have such a class or know of one.
