Legally, it probably depends where you live. In many places it would be against the law.

But realistically, 10 years old is not old enough to put in charge of another child. I wouldn't even contemplate allowing my 10 year old to babysit and be responsible for someone else. I don't even leave my 10 year old at home on her own for longer than about 5 minutes, let alone at home alome in charge of others.
