    I think you are being paranoid, if your auntie had any worries whatsoever about you babysitting she wouldn't ask you....whether you were 18 or 28!!

    What could go wrong?

    Babysitting an adult...i've never heard of...only like nurses or something...
    i think she said that becuase you are mature and maybe she can trust you more. I don't think your aunt would ask you when your 18 so you'll get blamed by the law or anything...it's seems a bit harsh.

    I guess she can trust you more since you've become an adult.

    But you said that "I'm wondering has she suddenly asked me cause she knows that cause im 18 I'l get the blame from the law if anything goes wrong?" which means that's your main concern? So I asked why would anything go wrong, as in why would there be a reason for something to go wrong...

    She wouldn't ask me when I was 17 though I even offered, im sure its cause of the law thing, guess I just see her as an evil aunt:rolleyes:

    Maybe she sees that as an 18 year old you're more responsible. If you were 17 you'd still be blamed by the law - you'd hardly be "innocent" and people younger than 18 go to juvenile centres. I think you are being a bit too paranoid perhaps.

    Partly because if she left her children with an under-18 and something did go wrong, she'd also be responsible? I'm sure she does trust you, otherwise she wouldn't do it at all.

    No, I don't mean that she's trying to shift the blame onto you - just that it's more responsible to have a legal adult around.
