Have you ever gotten slapped and dragged into the back room for a spanking because your mother or father accused you of pulling your skirt up during the meeting? I was thinking of the little girls outgrowing their dresses and them becoming so short that it was hard to sit 2 hours with the skirt pulled down over your knees or just above, at the very least. My sister's and my dresses were always too short when we sat down and could only keep them pulled down to a decent length when standing, not sitting. We got in trouble for it.
Ever get spanked for pulling your dress up in the meeting when little?

All the time!
I'm laughing so hard right now remembering all the times I got dragged into the bathroom, or told to go back to my room!!! Either my dress was too short, shirt was too revealing, ...blah..blah...blah!!
I'd outgrow clothes rapidly. Since I was the oldest...there weren't any "hand-me downs". They'd either be too short, or my boobies would make the shirt pucker, seeing how I was endowed at an early age!!
the stories i could tell about the beating my brother and sisters got at the hall. it was like a free for all. all the kids got slapped the living shit out of . right in the main hall. every week like clock work. forget about the back room. it was done infront of everybody. belts, paddles, hands etc. i remember one father chocking his 6 year old son by his tie. chocking him while kicking him in the ass every other second. i saw some sick shit at the hall. and will never forget it.
I never did it when I was young but it started to become a nasty habbit after I hit puberty. It was so new and exciting to finally be out of diapers.
My wife has slapped my hand for pulling her skirt up, but otherwise- NO.
That's just thier way of saying that they really like it.
Very funny thread!
I remember getting into trouble when I was 7 because I was sick of wearing uniform at school when no one else did so I snuck in favourite blue dress with no sleeves that buttoned up the front and a friend lent me a spare pair of sandals with heels. I would have gotten away with it if I hadnt taken it a step further and unbuttoned the buttons to my crotch (god knows where I picked that up from) and the teachers called my parents!!!
NO, but I would have been spanked for looking
Oh, you guys are so funny! This one was for former little girls! Hahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!! The spanking part for absolutely any reason at all is for all of us here. I think not just a few of us were damaged emotionally from the "scriptual requirement" that parents must beat their children as often as possible with whatever weapon is close by and with as many people watching as possible to show what "good" parents they were . Anyone resentful of their parents for it? Dumb question, sorry.
Not for wearing a dress but i got dragged out back a few times - seemed to be a dub favourite.
i see nothing funny about it. i understand my getting smacked at home for doing something wrong as a child. but i see nothing funny about little kids getting the shit kicked out of them for not being able to sit straight for 2 hours. and the dress thing would have been worth the smack. never had the luck. to get such a well deserved smack
I raised 4 kids in the JW religion - only have one daughter. Absolutely not! About the spankings.
I remember at assemblies when kids were getting wailed on in the Women's bathroom. Belts came out too. It was awful.
I've made peace w/my kids. They know that I did what I thought was right. For that I'm thankful.
Well... seein as I am a fella - I didn't wear dresses... but my older sisters did.
I remember one time when I was about 5 or 6 - my sister was wearing one of her pretty dresses - with those half-slips - you know the kind - it was popular in the late 50's and early 60's. It had lots of netting material, and made the skirts stand out full. Anyway, my mom was taking care of getting her hair combed or something, and I noticed that a portion of her dress was flipped revealing the slip netting underneath. So I reached over and smoothed down her dress to cover the slip - like it should be.
Well... I caught all hell. My mom gave me the longest - sternest - lecture I have _ever_ gotten! (Both of them thought that I was trying to peek under her dress - which I wasn't.) Anyway, after like what seemed to be an hour of lecture - me shrinking all the way to the floor - my face red from embarrassment... I was finally given a chance to speak.
I timidly mentioned that I wasn't trying to lift her dress, but smooth it out, as it had been flipped up.
Instead of getting an apology for being lambasted - I got the usual stern... "Oh. Well, just make sure that you _don't_ lift her skirt." ... and that was that.
i see nothing funny about it.
I understand there's nothing funny about getting beaten stupid by your parents (as I endured the same thing), but you REALLY should see what I look like in a dress :)
I'm very sorry. I meant the guys who commented about their dresses, not the serious "beat the sh!t out of us every meeting." I'm sorry.
Wait. I said it right. I said the part of getting beaten was for all of us. The dress part was for the girls. No, it is not funny at all.
FYI: Not many little girls pulled their skirts up, but when they sat down the already too short skirt (they grew out of last year) naturally pulled up. I remember gripping the end of my skirt the whole meeting so it would not pull up when I moved a little. Some girls pulled it up on purpose to hide because of shyness. I saw that alot. Dresses were good for hiding behind when meeting strangers. Did our parents think we were trying to be sexy? That's sick! Why the beating for it? I still don't get it.
Physical assault on people is illegal unless it is against someone much much smaller and younger than yourself, then you can beat the crap out of them with impunity. That is how the law sounds to me. I will never sanction assault on any living thing, EVER! The "rod" is a METAPHORE!!! No one ever asked why little girls pull up their skirts sometimes. No one stops to notice if the skirt is just too short and they are not really doing it. They just get beat on the spot with no Q's asked. Oh yeah, THAT's love. Ok, I'm really angry here. I need to stop. Bye-bye!
Spank a little girl for pulling up a dress? That's insane! They're children!
I've never heard of that here.
I do remember a girl in my cong, she might have been between 10-11 at that time, quite childish for her age, and very clumsy. Close to the end of the meeting she sometimes was allowed to visit the toilet. When she came back, she one (or more) time(s) would have her dress stuck into her pantyhose. One time she came back from the toilet (in the middle of the last prayer!), whith dress stuck into her pantyhose -- together with a strip of toilet paper!!!
The first time we just giggled a little bit. The other time, in the middle of that prayer (of course we had to peek...), me and my friend just _died_ of laughter, trying desperately to keep it quiet. OMG... :-D
Poor girl... :-)
No spanking occured after none of these events, as far as I know.
