People hire 13 year olds to baby-sit 9 year olds, so that's OK. Evidently having a 9 year old baby sit a 6 year old is not. But where is the line? I'm guessing it's 12 or 13, but where is that stated?
In reality, it all depends on the maturity of the older child. Some 11 year olds are probably fine baby sitters, while some 13 year olds are probably awful.
