Saved From Cross-Dressing

Christle Prado punished her bed-wetting ten-year-old son by dressing him as a girl. In other circumstances social services are the champions of diverse sexuality. But Florida DCF has taken Prado's son and his siblings.
What is the punishment for bed wetting in foster care? Former foster child John Dunn was punished by having his head forced into a toilet until he nearly drowned.
Florida mom forced bed-wetting son to wear dress: cops
Christle Prado and her live-in landlord, Keith Driscoll, dressed the boy, 10, in a blue princess gown and posted the humiliating pictures on Facebook, relatives say. The mother and roommate face felony child abuse charges.
A Florida mom and her live-in landlord forced her son to wear a dress as punishment for wetting the bed, authorities said.
The two marched the crying 10-year-old outside in a low-cut blue princess gown so his friends could see, the child’s disgusted grandmother said.
“I’m mad,” grandmother Sherry Morden told WKMG-TV. “What right do you have doing this to your kids or allowing anybody to do this to your kids?”
Christle Prado, 34, of Winter Garden and her landlord, 26-year-old Keith Driscoll, were arrested Thursday on felony child abuse charges.
The boy’s uncle called police after spotting a photo of his nephew on Facebook.
The child is standing in a doorway with a lavender bow in his hair and tears streaming down his face in the humiliating pic.
“This puts so much abuse on a child,” Winter Garden Lt. Scott Allen told WESH. “It’s not fair for them to live like that.”
Prado admitted photographing her son and posting the pics online, authorities said.
She told investigators she was “frustrated” and turned to Driscoll for help after the boy urinated on himself several times, according to an affidavit obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
The bizarre discipline was Driscoll’s idea, the mother said, and she “went along with it because she did not want to cause problems and ruin her living situation,” the affidavit said.
The boy has a medical condition, and the bed wetting wasn’t his fault, grandmother said.
Morden now has custody of the child and Prado’s other two kids, WKMG-TV reported.
“It will get better,” Morden told the child during an interview with WKMG-TV. “I promise.”
