Petticoating Of Boys

       A long time ago unruly and disrespectful boy children were given a special type of discipline.   They were indoctrimented into petticoat discipline.
The discipline did not usually include the use of physical force other then a minor spanking.   The boys would be dressed as a girl in full petticoats and dresses, stockings and flat shoes.   The boys not wanting to be seen immediate settled down.    The duration of being dressed in this manner depended upon the offenses the boy had committed.   It could have been for a day to several weeks.
       However in todays society in different parts of Europe and in England it is still practiced.    Mothers, grandmothers, aunts and nannies all who practice this still dress their young male charges in feminine garments.  Although for the most part petticoats have gone the way of the transistor radio
the boys are dressed in todays girls garments that express femininity.   Only dresses and skirts are used, none of the girls pants or shorts.  Different styles of panties and slips are used instead of the old pettipants and petticoats.
       According to those who practice this form of punishment the boys are much much more manageable.   They becoming more quiet and reserved.
None of the boisterous defiant attitudes or the their using of physical force against anyone.   Again the boys are fearful of being discovered by their peers.
they fear not only being seen by their male friends but the female friends as well.    Again the duration still varies with one exception that has been added,
that is the boys dresses are actually his.    Bought and paid for in his sizes.  Then they are kept in his closet, hanging next to his pants or suits as a constant reminder should he return to his old disrespectful ways.
       With so many boys being disrespectful of their parents, their teachers, or others.    With so many boys taking an active part in bullying other boys, or abusing girls should we start such discipline here in America.    It is not abuse, there is no physical harm.  It teaches rather openly that certain actions
can cause a set disciplines without beating or striking the child.    It is a tool to bring unruly and disrespectful boys into line before they become tyrants.
we have had enough tyrants in this world from Hitler to Saddam.   Maybe instead of weapons of mass destruction we should change over to dresses of mass instruction.

add spankings into the equation and that sounds good!

ooooh I luv this site

Some people want to cross dress. This will only encourage students to be bad.

Abuse child abuse

Perfect experience for all little boys!

This seems a tad transphobic and misogynist.

Oh wow what a great idea
bad boys get petticoat discipline

I would welcome seeing Petticoat Punishment being made more mainstream society. I think women would love it, and girls could practice on their terrible older or younger brothes!

Basically "humility" is a delicate balance. Something to be bestowed on our children without semi noshing their potential! Anyone have the exact reality that will insure this? Especially in an age where we degrade anything masculine, and favor anything emotionally feminine.

this is a stupid myth in my opinion
I strongly suggest using male hormone blockers when necessary the boys ages 8 to 11 but nothing's better and a strict mother was not afraid to discipline her boys as needed which includes beating their *** stand in the corner taking away privileges but when combined use with male hormone blockers most all boys he come complacent compliant and obedient as the lack of testosterone 6 weather dresses macho defiant attitude

This wouldn't work. Many boys would develop a sexual attachment to the feminine clothing, and it would be pleasurable to dress up in female garments, rather than unfavourable. Educating the boys and girls on their bad behaviour, and telling them why they shouldn't do certain things (using reason, logic, etc.) would be more effective than dressing them up as the opposite gender or hitting them.

It sounds like a good thing to me. But, I like wearing dresses and petticoats.

I would see it as heaven, rather than hell.

I love your stories, and I see we have some things in common. I would love it if you would add me.

I personally experienced forced crossdressing. It's as near to rape as one can get.
I was ********, forcibly held down, spanked, humiliated and crossdressed by my mother and two aunts when I was six years old. It all happened in front of four girl cousins. I vividly remember the details, and the pain. I always thought that it was strange that something so painful as a child, would be such a strong attraction as an adult. I always wondered why my own mother would do something like that. I never acknowledged to any of those involved just how this one incident changed my life. I have long forgave those involved, but I sometimes wonder if they even know how it affected me, or perhaps how my life might have been different if it had not happened. I realize that it's just a fantasy to most, but I experienced it, and I'm not so sure I would want someone else to feel the rejection and self-doubt it created. On the other hand-what a walk on the wild side it has been. Please read the story. Its listed under I crossdressing punishment.

Perhaps you should call them on what they did to you, perhaps there is something for all to learn.

The current situation in the US is, as one woman put it, "there are clothes for females and unisex clothes."

In an ideal world, there would be just unisex clothes, period. A boy would be as unself-conscious in a dress as a girl is in jeans and a T-shirt.

In such a world so-called "petticoat discipline" would not exist because being a boy in a dress would be "no big deal."

Excellent reasoning!

that is heavy

just give me a dress to wrar and i will do it ptoudly

Your letter is so true, who needs bombs when we have feminine clothes.

This is something that should be started in the US now.

All of us might be surprised down the road. With the help of the computers and millions of younger ladies reading, a lot of things could change in the years to come.

Thanks for your letter.


thy should also be put in nappies (disposable or terry) and frilly plastic pants.

The thought of being punished by being feminized is so traumatic to a child but so delightful to the adult years later. I wear men's bikini briefs which are indistinguishable from skimpy panties. I also occasionally wear frilly plastic diapers when I go out in mixed company. Why? These garments help me remain in a semi-erect state throughout the work day. I often wonder how the women I meet would react if they only knew what I was wearing. Love your attitude, Kate.

sorry, but i prefer to be called katherin.

NP, Katherin. I still love your attitude.

I remember vividly being forced in the third grade to wear a ribbon in my hair because I annoyed some girls on their way to school. Usually they were great targets for snowball throwers. The delighted looks on the girls' faces as they watched me being humiliated stands out prominently. I think they enjoyed my emasculation enormously. This experience led to many happy fantasies over the years of forced crossdressing.

What happens if the child loves being dressed as a girl?

He should be allowed to be himself. Let him dress and remember the boy is still a boy even tho he chooses to look like a girl.

Some of those see-through petticoats would keep me happy for hours. I would love to go to a store and try on a few of them with the assistance of a supportive sales woman who delights in helping men become sissified.

just look on line or your phone book for western or square dance stores. Most towns have at least one and go try them on. I try them on at a store close to my home and they don't care as long as I buy something while I'm there.

As a 66 year old male who has, over the last 40 years, mentored dozens of TS and TG males I have found that 99.00% of stories from people who state that they have subjected boys to 'petticoating' and from boys who state that they have been subjected to 'petticoating' are nothing more than written masturbatory fantasies.

You're not looking hard enough. Go find that missing 1% of both story-types. The wish is father to the thought.

John08049, You are quite obviously part of the 1.00%. Your comment about being semi-erect shows quite clearly that you wear feminine underwear for erotic and not punishment purposes.

To put a pre-pubescent male into female clothes IS a form of sexual/child abuse. The effect of corrected behaviour is instilled by fear! Nothing less. Fear of being seen is caused by the fear of the bullying that will result from being seen.

To deliberately cause fear in a child is abuse, psychological abuse, but abuse nevertheless.

Fortunately most of the TS/TG males that I have dealt with have made their own choice, as obviously you have, but you still have a masturbatory component to your actions.

You do not say that you were subjected to petticoating merely to a ribon in your hair.

I stand by my commenmt that 99.00% of stories supposedly written by men who as boys were so subjected are mastutbatory fantasies, as are 99.00% of the stories about married men forced into crossdressing by dominant wives and then forced to observe the wives with a dominant lover.

If an adult chooses to act in this way - fine - no problem, but a child - NO!

I agree that it is a crime to force a child into humiliating cross dressing. I was dressed as a woman by my mother when I was 10 for a Halloween party. I did not feel any humiliation but the recollection of the experience a few years later gave me some interesting masturbatory fantasies. The sensation and image of ruby red lipstick being applied to my lips was almost climactic. The feel of silky cloth against my skin was exquisite. With the onset of puberty I explored my sister's and mother's closets and dressers occasionally with the stiffest erection imaginable. The thought of being caught only enhanced my heartbeat and bloodflow. Your 99% finding is probably spot-on but a lot of our stories here are fantasies anyway. Perhaps the only way we can make them a little more realistic is to put a pen to paper and drag them into the open.

Gender inequality is very prevalent, and as a premodern feminist I believe the walk in my shoes is a lesson that should be reinforced on both sides of the gender divide

Surely this is very sexist, even if it does work?
I think this teaches being like a girl is a shameful punishment, something to be frowned upon. Would girls be forced into boys clothes? No.

Actually I can conceive the princesses of this society could benifit from experiencing life from the perspective of the men they expect to care fore their every need. I'm all for a girl spending a moment or two in as a guy in this world

There is no need for girls to be so forced. It is now the norm for girls to wear trousers (slacks/jeans), the fact that the fly is on the wrong side is ahrdly noticable, so the fear of bullying by a boy dressed as a girl is absent when the roles are reversed.

Well maybe if enough guys keep wearing girls clothe the norm may turn to a better life for the sissy guys for sure.

Girls are already cross dressing everyday when they wear pants and shirts like the boys, so why cant the boys wear dresses when they want too.

As a piece of historical background, this is fine: there is ample anecdotal evidence to suggest that petticoat discipline used to be enforced, and was effective for exactly the reasons advanced in the article. The extent of it is a little difficult to assess, as some of the first-hand accounts written by people who say they had it done to them as boys seem to veer a bit into the realms of the implausible.

But I have serious doubts about the claim that in England it's still practised "in today's society". While the effect it would have is arguably beneficial, the reality is that once the Child Protection people got wind of anyone doing it, they'd have the Social Services all over them like a rash trying to get the boy(s) taken into care. Regardless of the rights and wrongs of it as a punishment, it's simply not these days politically correct to use it.

It is a crime to destroy a childs hope and smile.

I think that other forms of punishment would be far more effective than this one. The only thing this form of punishment does is destroy their self-esteem and confidence that they are valued by others. What you do using this form of punishment is give the childs peers (and a **** load of immature adults) permission to denegrate them (it is a humiliation punishment). If you ever recind the punishment those others won't get the message. It is a permanent punishment. Anyone that resorts to this punishment (not as a last resort) would deserve to lose that childs love and respect FOREVER!

Sounds like a great plan. In our society today, children in general, are not disciplined like they once were. Parents are afraid to spank their children they believe in reasoning or time outs. To most kids, this is not much of a punishment, sometimes a negative consequence to there actions is required, such as a good old fashioned spanking. <br />

But dressing our young boys would also work great, I have read many stories about how well this works. Plus I remember in school when the naughty boys had to move over to the girl's side of the room for punishment. They usually did not want to be noticed, so they kept their heads down. The feminine dressing of a young boy would have the same effect. So I say let's go for it!!
