14 and 22, both used for different things. The 14 is SUCH a mature little mum, and daughter of our best friends.
The 22 yr old works at the toddlers daycare and is awesome.

Yeah, I find it tricky, having 5 kids, it seems like alot to put on anyone (although our family are cool with it and the kids are very well behaved etc.)

Yeah I don't have a babysitter anymore. The kids go to daycare cos I work and the ages range from a trainee about 16 to a qualified in her fourties.

I'm using a babysitter for the first time ever next week, I've only ever had my parents look after my kids so I'm a bit nervous. She's 19, which I thought was a bit young but she has certificates in first aid, anaphylaxis, child care check, references etc. and I met up with her last week, my gut feeling was to give her a chance

I have used a neighbour as young as 14. She only lives just down the road and her mother was home. we were also 5 minutes away - small country town. DS was 3.5 at the time. All I really need is to make sure that he does not set fire to the house etc. She just let him watch tv on his couch and didn't give him a bedtime but that is ok. I didn't think he would stay awake that long.
Msot recently I was just at another neighbours house and DS was in bed. She just had to be there. She sat and watched tv for two hours.
I think it depends on the age of the child and the gap between the babysitter and child. I would not have felt comfortable leaving DS with a teenager whilst younger but now I am pretty easy.
