Is there a law against leaving a 14 year old home alone with a 3 year old and a 1 year old for 6 and a half hours?

Nope as most places recognize 11 or 12 as the age of a sibling or babysitter to take care of kids this long so your answer here is no.

You are not going to get out of babysitting your siblings legally, so bear it with some grace.

That scenario may be child abuse. All night? You need to talk to a trusted adult on the scene who may talk to child protective services about this. There is not enough detail on a web site.

Nope, here you are legal to babysit when you are 12. When I was 14 I took care of three little kids for 3 days in a row, and watched kids all day during the summer and made sure supper was on the table when the mom got home from work.
