Should My Parents Let Me Babysit My Siblings At Night?

My parents both work really hard and they are always really busy, so for christmas I brought them a movie voucher each so that they could have a date night away from all us kids. The problem is I don’t know if they will let me babysit my siblings at night.
I am a 15 year old girl and I have a soon to be 13 year old brother who they always say they don’t like to leave me alone with because three years ago he had anger issues and always used to try to beat me up or pick a fight with me. They DO leave me alone with him though, we all walk home from school every day and I’m ‘babysitting’ them every afternoon monday-fryday, and he hasn’t done anything bad in three years. We also have two little sisters who are five but one is almost 6. It might be hard to get them to bed but I’ve put them to bed often anyway.
I am worried that my parents won’t want to leave us so I made a contract, which doesn’t mean anything, I don’t expect five year olds to care about a contract if they don’t want to go to bed but the point was to show that they understand what will happen, I’m trying to make it a fun night for them too, I told them what was happening and made them sign it so Mum and Dad know that they have been told (The contract say that they can watch two movies, they get two bedtime stories, and I will sit with them as they go to sleep.
I signed the contract too by the way, it says I have to do the dishes and help the kids and be responsable in an emergency, that kind of stuff that I would do anyway.
I want to know, if you were our parents would you leave us for a few hours in the evening? Do you think it’s wrong for me to tell my parents to go on a date? Do you think I am biting off more than I can chew?

    I sure would 🙂 you sounds like a very responsible young lady and could handle your siblings just fine at night time (since you do just fine after school). My mom always told me it never hurts to ask, so give it a shot. Good luck hun and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas 🙂
