Do you think it is ok for a 12 yr old to babysit younger siblings (8 & 5 yr old) for hours on end, into the midnight hour? Mother works and sometimes has to be at work at 6 in the morning, so she tells the children they don't have to attend school that day because of her leaving so early. According to the state of WV and CPS, it's ok and there are no laws against this!! The 12 yr old has the mind of a 3 yr old, slaps the younger ones in the face, won't let them eat and etc, but according to this state, that's ok
